There has been an enormous reaction to the Two Women Travel Twitter account, which is documenting a woman’s journey to the UK to receive an abortion.

The two women behind the account started tweeting updates from the journey in the early hours of this morning, with Taoiseach Enda Kenny tagged in numerous posts.

There has been an extraordinary response to the move as @TwoWomenTravel garnered thousands of followers in a matter of hours and quickly started trending on Twitter in both Ireland and the UK.

Several celebrities and well known personalities, including James Corden and Graham Linehan, have come out in support of the women, while thousands of others have tweeted their take on it. 

Many people have also condemned the women's actions.
