Description

‘Stole a watch - 10 years on the Hulk Fitzjames’. ‘Found wandering at night- 6 years at Magill Reformatory School’. Nineteenth century child welfare reforms attempted to eradicate the ‘immoral’ behaviour of poor children. Visit the former Destitute Asylum to explore the identities, lives and routines of these forgotten children.
