Minister for Children Katherine Zappone has said she is “deeply concerned” about venues withdrawing permission for anti-abortion and pro-choice group meetings because of pressure from rival organisations.
She said it was vital that people on all sides of the debate had an opportunity to gather in hotels and community centres to talk about the referendum on the Eighth Amendment, scheduled for May or June next year.
