TF Royal Castlebar

  • Up to 300 people attended the Save the Eighth conference in the TF Royal Hotel in Castlebar last night.

    A range of speakers addressed those in attendance, including the Deputy leader of Fianna Fáil Dara Calleary and Sinn Fein deputy Peadar Toibin. Both TDs confirmed their opposition to repealing the Eighth Amendment and stated that it has served this country well in the protection of both mother and child.

    Niamh Ui Bhriain Director of the Life Institute said that if the Eighth amendment is repealed it will legalise abortion for the first 12 weeks of a baby’s life for any reason.

    A standing ovation followed speaker Sandra Caulfield and her husband Jonathon who shared the story of Hope Rose their baby daughter diagnosed with a life limiting condition before birth and who lived for 9 days.

    The gathering came to their feet again for Dr Anthony O’Reilly ,a GP, who asked how could he deliver a baby into life on one hand and condemn another to death if abortion is legalised in Ireland.
    Galway based business man Declan Ganley closed the conference with a plea to people to stand for life and fight the attempt to change the Constitution.
