A song about abortion and Ireland From The Sawdoctors’ third album Same Oul Town (1995) with a new video by Cian Brennan.
Ana Cosgrave, creator of the REPEAL project jumpers, writes
“This is the only song written about the women who travel Everyday from Ireland to access abortion services abroad and this collaboration with the Saw Doctors brings these women’s stories to life. In it we see a diverse range of Irish women, all of whom are voting Yes tomorrow, representing the women who travel. For me this song is a clarion call for care and compassion.”
“I wanted to get in touch to share a link to a video I made for the new single from The Minutes. The track is called ‘Love, Hope and Other Plans’ and the video features Peter McGann and John Doran as two Mormon missionaries on the streets of Dublin going about their daily routine. Violence looms as one of them is grows very tired of the other. The video was shot, directed and edited by myself.”
New music video by Dublin techno duo PolyGlove from concept EP ‘Sausage Box Meal’, based on their local chipper

The concept of the EP was conceived in our local chipper one hazy night as we drew comparisons between our current grimy techno sound and the salt ridden, vinegar soaked box meal we were about to consume.” Support your local chipper…
A moving duet written and recorded to help raise awareness on repealing the Eighth Amendment.
The song looks at the issue from the perspective of a couple who find themselves having to travel to the UK to access safe medical care. We get to see from their point of view how this feels and how it impacts on them personally.
The song is a duet as I really wanted to represent both the male and female viewpoint in a realistic and sympathetic way.
