Morning all. I’m Siobhán Donohue @SiobhanDonohue and I’m doing the final leg for @TFMRIRE today. I’m 46, married to Joe and we have 3 kids, Ciaran (10) Aoife (8) & Cillian (4) as well as the baby we lost to FFA. I’m a GP by profession but on a break since Cillian was born
I grow up in Dun Laoghaire, studied medicine in Trinity and worked as a junior doctor in various hospitals around the country including Limerick, Portlaoise and Dublin before completing my GP training in Edinburgh.
I returned home in 2001 and have worked in a variety of GP practices down the years until 2013 when I decided it was time for a break. I now live in Bray so pretty close to my parents. You may have seen them in the last 2 weeks: irishtimes.com/news/social-af…

Good morning. I'm Claire Cullen-Delsol @DelsolClaire I'm 33, married to Wayne and have two kids, Carla 10 & Nathan 4. I'm a member of @TFMRIRE and have campaigned for #repealthe8th since 2015. Here's me on the right.
A bit of background on me, I was born in Dublin, raised in Carrick on Suir, moved to Cork for College, met Wayne, had Carla, moved to Waterford, got degree, got married, had Nathan. I work full-time for a not-for-profit, and my hobbies include food & jigsaw puzzles.
In 2015 I found out I was pregnant with our 3rd baby. Nathan was only 1, Carla was 7. I was working a job with a 100km commute & long hours & pregnancy was not in the plan. But as my dad says, "we plan, God laughs". It didn't take long to get excited about another baba.

Am shaking with anger over what Danny Healy Rae had the gall to say in the Dáil last night. It was initially suspected my daughter had an FFA at 29 wks pregnancy. The agony of the days waiting for results was unspeakable & will never leave me. It turned out that her
condition was not an FFA but it has left her with physical & severe intellectual disabilities & many challenges. I do not know what I would have done if her condition had been an FFA but I do know this: I would have wanted to make that incredibly hard and agonising decision
for myself, not to have been forced into a situation created by the 8th amendment. I support those parents who made the agonising decision to leave their country & end their pregnancies to save their beloved babies from suffering & I also support those parents who CHOOSE to
