The Seanad Takeover Documentary

Directed and edited by Marcus Howard. Documentary about the Seanad, it's history and featuring Michael Collins, JFK, Mary Robinson, David Norris and WB Yeats. Please watch this to the end as something really amazing happens to Dublin Says No and Dundalk Says NO on O'Connell Street. Please share if you think anyone is unsure of what way to vote on the Seanad this Friday. Whatever you decide, the worst thing you can do is not to vote at all.
