People are sharing their love for comedian Tara Flynn on Twitter and it's all very wholesome

Isn’t the world so much nicer when we’re sound to each other?

COMEDIAN AND ACTOR Tara Flynn has had a long, long, long couple of years campaigning for the Eighth Amendment to be repealed.

She became one of the faces of the Repeal the Eighth campaign when she shared the story of her crisis pregnancy at Electric Picnic in 2015 and how she travelled to The Netherlands for a termination.

She wrote the play, Not A Funny Word, based on the experience of having to travel for an abortion in 2006.

Flynn has spoken online about receiving a lot of abuse from trolls on Twitter, announcing yesterday that the criticism had taken its toll and is now taking time out after three years of campaigning.

With the eighth firmly repealed though, Colm O’Gorman of Amnesty International Ireland decided he wanted to kick off a lil’ love in for the writer and activist on Twitter.


And in fairness, he succeeded.





That’ll be a nice sight to see when she’s back on social media. You can buy her book as well, if you feel like being extra sound.
