WHAT’S THE STORY?

1. Test results have confirmed that the body of a man who was discovered in Donegal yesterday morning – has tested negative for Ebola. Dessie Quinn had recently travelled to a part of Africa where Ebola had hit.

2. A two day strike at Irish Rail is set to inconvenience thousands of GAA fans travelling to Croke Park on Sunday- the first day of the industrial action. Irish Rail has described it as ‘insanity’.

5. The case of a woman who was denied an abortion under recent legislation has again brought up a debate on the 8th Amendment to the Constitution – which gives an unborn child an equal right to life as that of its mother.

During the week Minister Charlie Flanagan said that there was “no appetite” for another referendum surrounding the 8th Amendment. Today we asked you if you think we should have a referendum on the 8th Amendment and your response has been pretty clear.
