Rally for Life 2021

Last year, the local pro-life rallies held around the country were perhaps the most striking and effective events to take place at a time when the Rally for Life was moved online because of Covid-19. 

This year, with the never-ending lockdown making a big Dublin gathering impossible for the second year in a row (though see more about an October demonstration here), pro-life leaders around the country are keen to make those local public events even more effective for 2021. 

 So for 2021 we're going to maximise the effect of BOTH the local pro-life rallies - and the online Rally by joining activists the country over in these key events! 

The theme of this year's Rally for Life is Exposing the Truth about Late-Term Abortion in Ireland 

LOCAL RALLIES: Join the local pro-life witness held in your town on Saturday 3 July - we'll be putting a list up soon, but you might like to take the initiative to start one in your area if one didn't take place last year. 

ONLINE RALLY FOR LIFE: Takes place LIVE online on Sunday, 4 July

VIGIL FOR LIFE: Live from St Mary's Friday, 2 July

PLUS other exciting events including the Premiere of Tim Jackson's powerful new documentary about the 2018 referendum with explosive insights and revelations.
