A pro-life anti-abortion video was shown to a group of sixth-year students at a Catholic secondary school in Tipperary, causing some of the girls who watched it to break down in tears and sparking a major complaint to the Teaching Council.

The video, produced by the Life Network in Dallas, Texas, was shown to students at Ursuline Secondary School in Thurles, in December 2019. A complaint made by the mother of one of the students led to a prolonged process of investigation. That ended in late June of this year with a final ruling that it did not warrant a full disciplinary inquiry.
