Hundreds of white crosses erected along one of Donegal's busiest roads

WHITE crosses planted on one of the busiest roads in Letterkenny have surprised and shocked many motorists travelling in and out of the town.

Hundreds upon thousands of small white crosses have been spotted on the road going from Bridgend to the Dry Arch Roundabout in the small Donegal town.

It's reported the crosses were put out on Thursday night, with motorists on Friday morning and today receiving a shock when driving along the road.

No group has yet taken responsibility for the erection of the crosses alongside the main road however it is thought that the display is linked to the pro-life campaign ongoing in Ireland.

Donegal Pro-Life has not claimed responsibility for the crosses however a comment to Donegal Daily from a local pro-life campaigner claimed that the crosses set out would "represent the lives that will be taken per year in Ireland if there is a yes vote."

The addition of the white crosses marks the fight between both the Yes and No sides hotting up following the erection and removal of a No sign on an Irish mountain, Ben Bulben.

The decision to erect the white crosses in Donegal has upset voters on both the Yes and No sides, with one journalist even beginning to write the names of women deceased due to the limitations of the 8th amendment.
