Host of recognisable Irish faces gather to support #men4yes, initiative for men to vote Yes in upcoming abortion referendum

THE personalities urging the men of Ireland to get involved include many famous faces.

Comedian Kevin McGahern, boxer Andy Lee, former rugby player Gordon Darcy, footballer Richie Sadlier and commentator Con Murphy joined forces to spread the message of a Yes vote on May 25th.

The men, from all different walks of Irish life joined together to spread awareness of the urge to vote in the upcoming referendum.

The reliance on the male vote is particularly necessary to attempt to remove the 8th amendment from the Irish constitution.

Former Irish rugby star Gordon D'Arcy spoke of how Ireland needs to become more compassionate in the future: "The 8th Amendment is getting in the way of a more compassionate Ireland, where women have the choice to get the care they need, and make the decisions they need to make."
