It's something of an irony that at a time when repealing the 8th Amendment on abortion is the current feminist campaign (and women are being urged by campaigners to celebrate their abortions with a hashtag 'ShoutYour Abortion') the issue which has returned in entertainment form is the condom.
Yes, a musical entitled 'The Train' has for its theme that notorious contraceptive train which ran from Belfast to Dublin in 1971 and is to open next week in Dublin.
I participated in that original stunt, but I have declined any further connection with the performance in question and chosen not to appear on any radio or television programme associated with it.
