'It'll be harder to win a vote on the 8th'

Rory O'Neill, the man behind Ireland's premier drag act Pandora Panti Bliss, has discussed the need for creating "the space for people to express doubts" surrounding discussion on the Eighth Amendment.

O'Neill was at the forefront of the 2015 marriage equality referendum and says it's important to strike the right tone when arguing your side.

"It's going to be much harder to win the Eighth because the questions it raises are harder to have a conversation about," O'Neill said.

"You need to create a space where people are free to express their doubts.

"Then you can have that conversation."

"It would be lovely to say the tone doesn't matter but in a political campaign, but unfortunately it does.

"You need to be strategic," he said.
