Two Billboards Outside Buswells


This afternoon.

Noel Patrun and Caren Ni Hallachain launching a new billboard campaign for the Save the Eighth campaign.

The billboards are promoting a new pro-life online campaign, entitled ‘My Abortion Story’ – with the novel inclusion of people who haven’t had abortions.

    Is Úna ‘go away ye wife swapping sodomites’ Bean Mhic Mhathúna still around, btw?

    Yer man reminds me of the pool Supervisor in The Day Today.

      She’s still alive, though it’s her many offspring who are at the helm of various anti abortion organisations.

  2. anyone


    People expressing their democratic view in an open society!

    Better attack their personal appearance

    1. Sham Bob

      If you insist! Yer man’s billboard has 2 bolts placed right between his lips that make him look like his mouth is a tiny bit open and he has buck teeth. Unfortunate placement really, as they’ve already given him a dead-eyed stare.

      1. anyone

        Who did I defend? I attacked people attacking him for his appearance. Your comment is crap.

    Hmmmmm. Well isn’t that odd. A cursory search of these two brings up absolutely no details whatsoever.

    Considering Noel must have some medical background given his previous employment its a bit odd that nothing came up.

    Maybe they’ve both “gone dark” due to the interwebs being such a evil place

    1. Daisy Chainsaw

      Can’t go too dark when you’re an 8 foot tall head on a roaming billboard. It’s odd that such individual names throw up nothing in the way of medical registration, experience etc. All a google search of either name does is link back to this article.

      1. Sean

        That’s to ensure creeps like you are kept away. They certainly have the credentials on this topic and he has 15yrs of counseling women after aborting.

  4. The Ghost of Starina

    if he’s traumatised by the ickiness of surgery, maybe he should see a shrink rather than take away women’s bodily autonomy.

    also that URL doesn’t even work. (!

    1. edalicious

      I don’t understand in this day and age that you’d fork out for all your printing, billboards, truck rental, photocall, etc. and not even have a placeholder page set up for the address that you’re advertising.

    2. Martco

      mmm. more like just crappy/lazy setup by the admin, stick www in front of it if you really must, see here:

      On the subject itself I wouldn’t worry too much, looks like Caren and yer man there have very kind faces so I’m sure they’ll take care of all the born babies needs including any forced ones no matter what just like already happens of course into the future.

    That lady’s story is of an abortion in Australia after 22 weeks of gestation. This wouldn’t be allowed by this change propose din Ireland (if the 12 week limit is applied). Doesn’t seem like a fair comparison.

      1. Nigel

        Well, yes, allowed in cases of fatal foetal abnormality or to save the life of the mother, so obviously it’s a horrible disgrace and mustn’t be allowed.

  6. ReproBertie

    This campaign completely and utterly misses the point that abortions are happening in Ireland, through the abortion pill, and that Irish women are going abroad for abortions.

    The referendum will allow those using the abortion pill to do so with the support of GPs or other medical staff and will prevent women who are going to have abortions anyway having to travel to do so.

    Retaining the 8th will only prevent abortions for those who cannot afford to travel or who cannot access the pill. This means the campaign to retain the 8th is more about controlling access than actually preventing abortion.

    So if the baby was born and alive and breathing did she report murder or manslaughter to the police? Does it
    Make her complicit? Maybe she should be reported to the police.

      Babies are regularly, not commonly but regularly, born alive following/during abortions. Standard practice is to provide “comfort care” which means draping a cloth over them until they die.

        1. newsjustin

          In the UK alone:

          “Sixty-six of the 2235 neonatal deaths notified in England and Wales followed legal termination
          (predominantly on account of congenital anomalies) of the pregnancy i.e. born showing signs of life and dying during the neonatal period. Sixteen were born at 22 weeks’ gestation or later and death occurred between 1 and 270 minutes after birth (median: 66 minutes). The remaining 50 fetuses were born before 22 weeks’ gestation and death occurred between 0 and 615 minutes after birth (median: 55 minutes).”

          1. newsjustin

            The “comfort care” comment was informed by actual evidence given at the trial of Dr Kermit Gosnell by fully legal abortionists describing what is current best practice where foetuses are born alive during abortion.

        Source please.

        A reputable one. Not one of those nonsense ones that are paid for by the pro-life campaign.

          In the UK 66 out of about 180,000 abortions.

    Two people who made a living working in the “abortion mills” decide they’d now like to make a living in the antichoice mills! Travel and speaking gigs, billboard campaigns etc Ching Ching!!

    Speaking of Mills… Noel looks a bit like Keith.

  9. newsjustin

    I wonder if this is another of the things that pro life people shouldn’t talk about. Like the wholesale abortion of foetuses with Down Syndrome, or what an aborted foetus looks like.

  10. Joe Small

    One thing the pro-Choice crowd would do well to repeat is that no one thinks that abortion is a good thing and in an ideal world there would be no abortion.
    However, the same people who are “Pro-Life” insist on restricting access to contraception and proper sex education making abortions even more likely.
    The Pro-Choice side should stress their approach is a broad effort to ensure unwanted pregnancies are avoided and, when this is not possible, i.e. through rape, that termination is as early as possible.
