Simultaneous Vinyl Love for Repeal Events in 7 Cities of Ireland & UK including Limerick

Vinyl Love is back! Vinyl Love returns to Limerick again this year, hosting a full day of DJs and vinyl lovers playing their favourite records simultaneously. This event takes place across Ireland and the UK in multiple locations on Sunday, April 22.

These events are put on to raise funds for the Together for Yes campaign and with the vote in the abortion referendum coming on May 25th, the campaign needs it now more than ever.  Vinyl Love events raised over €4000 last year and we hope to at least match that this year, if not beat it!

Article 40.3.3, known as the Eighth Amendment, was voted into the Irish Constitution by referendum in 1983. The amendment states: ‘The state acknowledges the right to life of the unborn and, with due regard to the equal right to life of the mother, guarantees in its laws to respect, and as far as practicable, by its laws to defend and vindicate that right.’  The Repeal the 8th campaign works to protect the rights of the mother, and recent movements such as The Vinyl Love Collective for Repeal have been brought to life due to this.

Donation of €10 suggested on the door with all funds raised going to the Together For Yes campaign.
