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.
100s of white crosses have been erected almost the whole way from Donegal to Derry. I feel so angry that the people who erected them are putting so much energy into suppressing women's rights. So I wrote the names of some of the women who are dead bc of the 8th on the crosses pic.twitter.com/Id51gONGyG

So, anti-choice litterers planted thousands of white crosses all along the road from Letterkenny all the way to Bridgend, where Donegal meets the border with Derry. Why? Because that’s the route to the nearest airport to ship unwanted problems to the UK. #VoteYes #TogetherForYes pic.twitter.com/BDXM4dilFj

Anti-abortion campaigners in #Donegal have erected thousands of white crosses between Bridgend & Letterkenny. They say they’ve done it to get their viewpoint out. A spokesperson said Ben Bulben was stage one and this is stage two #abortionreferendum pic.twitter.com/5aDqsqbK1G
