The referendum to overturn Ireland’s near-total abortion ban in 2018 stands as one of the most remarkable political events of recent times. The campaign to repeal the 8th amendment succeeded not only in challenging centuries of religious and patriarchal dogma, but in signalling a major transformation in Irish society itself. ‘After Repeal’ explores both the campaign and the implications of the referendum result for politics, identity and culture today. 

Free and Everyone Welcome.
