Kenny won't be drawn on Magdalene apology

The Taoiseach has refused to say if he will apologise to the survivors of the Magdalene Laundries.

Enda Kenny met with some of the women affected yesterday, along with the Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore.

Afterwards, the survivors said they expect an apology will be forthcoming.

But speaking on his way into Government Buildings this morning, the Taoiseach refused to be drawn on the issue.

“I had a good meeting along with the Tánaiste with some of the suriviors of the Magdalene Laundries but I did say I wouldn’t make any comment about the meeting. I am going to stick to that.”
