Ireland is the only democracy in the western world to have a constitutional ban on abortion. Edited by Una Mullally, award-winning journalist and writer, and with contributions from Anne Enright, Lisa McInerney, Caitlin Moran, Louise O’Neill and others, Repeal the 8th is a powerful and deeply compassionate collection around the movement for reproductive rights in Ireland. Una Mullally is joined by poet Elaine Feeney, whose collection Rise was praised for its bold, direct yet tender writing, and Irish actor Tara Flynn, author of satirical books You’re Grand: the Irishwoman’s Secret Guide to Life and Giving Out Yards: the Art of Complaint, Irish Style and and actor Emmet Kirwan, the writer behind viral spoken word film Heartbreak, about a teenage single mother, which has received more that 1.4m views on Youtube.
