A woman, who is travelling to Manchester from Ireland for an abortion, accompanied by a second woman, are live tweeting their journey on @twowomentravel.

They left Ireland at about dawn this morning, and have been updating the journey since then.

The Twitter account has already received a lot of attention, with the likes of James Corden and a number of global news outlets picking up on the journey the women have taken.

The women declined to comment further when contacted by Independent.ie but did say that "Tweeting photos of our journey is the most painless way of conveying our message of solidarity, and outrage (at the situation)."
