There was a good turnout at Portarlington’s rally on Wednesday evening hosted by women’s rights lobby group, Standing 4 Women Laois, in solidarity with the hundreds of women affected by the Cervical Check scandal.
The protest in Portarlington was part of a national campaign organised by Standing 4 Women Ireland where people wore red and joined together for women’s health.
Kim Tully who organised the Portarlington rally was pleasantly surprised by the turnout.
“Originally when I set it up I thought there would be a handful and just my family to be honest but there was a lot of support on the Facebook page and there was a good few numbers, more than what I thought.”
Well done again Portarlington, lets get behind the women of Ireland and make this change happen!
