Magdalene laundries survivors say the government has broken its promise to create a memorial and redress scheme.
 
It's been four years since the then Taoiseach Enda Kenny made an emotional apology to the women affected.
 
They've held a rally at a former Laundry on Sean McDermott St in Dublin to highlight the unfulfilled promises.
 

 
They say time is running out for justice for the survivors and they're calling for action.
 
Earlier this month, the UN Committee against Torture criticised the government for not undertaking a full investigation into the laundries and ensuring that all survivors obtain redress - something it recommended in 2011.
