Abortion Rights Campaign says it "represents the failure of this government".

Four women from the Northern Sound region were among the 206 who travelled from Ireland to Britain to access abortion services last year.

That compares to 194 in 2020, during the height of the pandemic.

In 2020, three women from Cavan travelled to the UK to access abortion services, and this figure was four last year.

No one from Co Monaghan is recorded as having accessed abortion services in the UK during 2020 or 2021.

775 Irish women have travelled to the UK since abortion was legalised in Ireland in 2019.

Abortion Rights Campaign says "every person travelling to the UK represents the failure of this government".
