They took her freedom. They took her innocence. They took her child. But they couldn't take her spirit.

Bridie Rodgers was just two years old when she was arrested for begging on the streets of Dublin. She was to spend the next thirty years of her life locked away in different institutions.

The orphanage came first. But, at sixteen, she was raped, fell pregnant and was sent to a home for unmarried mothers. Even then, when she should have been shattered by what life had thrown at her, she found happiness in her perfect son. But Bridie's child was taken away from her and she was sent to one of Ireland's infamous Magdalene laundries.

And this was only the beginning...

Both harrowing and heart warming, this is more than a son's portrayal of his mother's life. FOR THE LOVE OF MY MOTHER lays to rest the demons that haunted Bridie and John Paschal for so many years, and celebrates the fact that, for them, a mother-son relationship wasn't a given - it was a triumph.
