The Eighth Amendment to the Irish Constitution (1983) reads:
“The State acknowledges the right to life of the unborn and, with due regard to the equal right to life of the mother, guarantees in its laws to respect, and, as far as practicable, by its laws to defend and vindicate that right.”
Precious Life states:
“In May, we face a referendum to remove the right to life of preborn babies from our Constitution. The proposal put forward by the government would make our ‘abortion laws’ more extreme than the UK where 200,000 babies lose their lives every year.
March 10th is the last major pro-life rally where we stand FOR life before the referendum. If we sit back and do nothing, this may be the last year where preborn babies have a right to life in Ireland.”
With a referendum due later this year aimed at over-turning the Eighth Amendment of the Irish Constitution – which recognises in law the right to life of unborn children, thereby outlawing abortion – it’s crunch-time in the fight to keep Ireland abortion-free.

Following the very successful public Rosary chain at more than 4,000 locations around the entire borders of Poland back in October, Irish Catholics are organising a rosary chain around the borders of Ireland for 26th November.
In Poland an estimated one million Catholics prayed for the salvation of Poland whilst commemorating the anniversaries of the appearances and warnings to mankind of Our Lady of Fatima, and of victory at the Battle of Lepanto in the 16th century (following which the Feast of the Holy Rosary was established).
“Our Divine Lord is seeking for courageous ‘Veronicas’ to wipe and honour His Divine Face”.
If you think you might have a vocation to a life of reparation and contemplative prayer as a Carmelite Hermit, then the Victim Adorers of the Holy Face, Camelite nuns, in West Cork, Ireland, would love to hear from you.
