Leitrim Abortion Rights campaigners to create human bridge

As part of the movement to repeal the 8th Amendment, the Leitrim Abortion Rights campaigners will take part in a national day of solidarity with International Women’s Day, Thursday 8th March.

The campaigners will create a human bridge along the Cumann na mBan footbridge in Carrick-on-Shannon at 6.30pm to commemorate extraordinary Irish women who have changed the world, joining hands across the Shannon from Leitrim to Roscommon.

Each participant will celebrate a woman activist from the last century, wearing a sash showing important names and dates, and holding pictures of the women who have made our lives better in the last 100 years.

Their aim is to draw strength from the women of the past to create a more equal and inclusive future for all in Ireland.

All are welcome, costume is encouraged!

Those attending are asked to bring a candle to light as the sun sets, and donations towards Leitrim Abortion Rights Campaign are welcome.
