PROTESTERS gathered outside the Irish consulate in Randolph Street demanding the right to legal abortions in Ireland.

The demonstration, part of a day of action at Irish embassies across the world, called for an immediate law change.

It followed the death of Savita Halappanavar, who was denied a termination campaigners claim would have saved her. Organiser Sinead Daly said women in Ireland should have the right to free, safe abortions.
