Abstract: The testimony above comes from the CLANN report, an evidence gathering and advocacy project that facilitated survivor participation in the Republic of Ireland’s ongoing Commission of Investigation into Mother and Baby Homes and Certain Related Matters. We open this special issue of Éire-Ireland, entitled Toward Transitional Justice in Ireland? Addressing Legacies of Harm, with survivors’ voices in order to acknowledge that the volume is concerned with the experience of hundreds of thousands of individuals who were born or grew up in Ireland, and of their families across multiple generations, who have been too frequently ignored. As academics and members of the Justice for Magdalenes Research (JFMR) advocacy group, for the past decade we have endeavored to place the motto of survivors, “nothing about us, without us,” at the center of our research and activism on the subject of Ireland’s class, race, disability, and gender-based abuses, so evident in Irish carceral institutions.
