ARCHIVE VIDEO: TD Clare Daly choked with emotion during passionate speech on the result of the Referendum to Repeal the 8th Amendment


Yesterday, in her first address since Saturday's monumental referendum result, she choked with emotion when she described it as "an enormous weight being lifted"

Ms Daly has a history of demanding and compelling the Dáil to be more compassionate, to afford people more dignity. She said she was "shocked" that nobody else in the Dáil had ever raised the issue of the plight of refugees, including Ireland's own lacklustre support for bringing refugees to Irish shores.

Back in 2012, alongside Wexford TD Mick Wallace and Dublin South Central TD Joan Collins, Ms Daly first introduced legislation to soften access to terminations, to make it legal for a woman to access an abortion when her life is in "real and substantial" danger.
