My father was a big fan of the great Kerry football team who, but for Seamus Darby's late great Offaly goal in September 1982, would have won an unprecedented five All-Irelands in a row.
Mick O'Dwyer's men had a will to win and self-belief that made them almost impossible to beat.
It sometimes seems that a similar challenge faces the Irish pro-life movement in its struggle to persuade people that Ireland without abortion is a much happier and humane place than an Ireland with abortion. It's not that our opponents are so good, though. They just have power- ful backers. Some are outside the country. We recently learned that American billionaire George Soros is pumping hundreds of thousands of dollars into the campaign for abortion in Ireland.
