Irish ex-pats spread the #NoMakeUpSelfie to Saudi Arabia
Published 25/03/2014 | 14:03
Two Irish girls living in Saudi Arabia are spreading the #NoMakeUpSelfie message overseas
The fun-loving girls sent us their #NoMakeUpSelfie, including the required abaya, to our Facebook page.
Mary o' Grady and Aedin Ni Fhlaithearta moved to Saudi Arabia last March and Mary is planning on staying for another year when Aedin returns home in the near future.
The two girls are currently working for Kina Abdulaziz Medical City, National Guard Hospital.
"Living in saudi arabia is quite a different experience from any other as it is the strictest of the Islamic countries...wearing an abaya is a must!"
"Covering our hair is a must if the Matowa (religious police) are around."
"They ensure that shops close for prayer call which will happen 4 times a day to ensure people are not distracted from praying! So all in all it is quite a different experience from a small village in Feakle, Co. Clare!"
