“In Ireland today…”

Saoirse Ronan, Cillian Murphy, Andrew Scott and Liam Cunningham are among a list of top Irish actors who are showing their support behind the ‘Together For Yes’ campaign in a brand new video published on the campaign’s social media channels this evening.

The powerful and chilling video lists the variety of ways in which women are currently affected by the 8th Amendment in this country and calls for this to change, saying: “For women’s safety, for a just society, for a fairer Ireland”.

This video brought to life by a collection of well-known Irish stars emphasises that “a yes vote, is a vote for compassion” for the women in our society – be they your sister, your daughter, your mates, your niece, your girlfriend, your granddaughter, your mother or your wife.

Starring, Saoirse Ronan, Cillian Murphy, Pauline McLynn, Liam Cunningham, Sinead Cusack, Ciaran Hinds, Aisling Bea, Tom Vaughan Lawlor, Victoria Smurfit and James Nesbitt.

The video ends by asking you to please have your say and vote in the upcoming referendum this May 25,“this is a once in a lifetime vote”.
