This week – Amy Dunne’s story
Documentary series ‘Finné’, inspired by Netflix documentaries of recent years, is back for a second series on TG4. Produced by Tua Films and presented by RTÉ correspondent Orla O’ Donnell, ‘Finné’ will visit more powerful Irish stories, stories about suffering, injustice, redemption, resilience and strength. The witnesses’ honest telling of their stories will ensure that they be brought to light once more and their stories will be told in the same personal style; through their own eyes to give the viewer a unique view of their incredible experiences.
Programme 3 – Amy Dunne
Amy Dunne, or ‘Miss D’ as she was referred to in her court case, was under the care of the State when she became pregnant at 17 years of age. This good news was soon followed by heartbreak however, as she was told by her doctors that her unborn child had anencephaly and would not survive more than a few minutes after birth. The HSE tried their best to stop Amy from travelling to seek an abortion, and so she brought the State to court and ended up winning her case in one of the most high profile cases of this sort this country has ever seen.
