Let’s return now to our special series exploring Newstalk’s 20 most influential moments of the past two decades. Every day we are looking back at a different story, chosen by you, the Newstalk listeners.

Today, we are going back to May 2018 when the people of Ireland voted to repeal the Eighth Amendment, making way for legal abortion in the country for the first time.

Once the referendum concluded, discussions and debates on the issue vanished from the news agenda, but what became of various campaign groups who were the driving the debate during the referendum?

 

Eilis Mulroy is a spokesperson for the Pro-Life Campaign and she joined Breakfast to look back.
