    If they work indoors the law labels them brothel-keepers, so they work outdoors, where if they work in groups they are criminalised as pimps. Net effect they will work alone which puts them in greater danger. This is badly thought out.

    Dame, the intellectual powerhouses and cynics behind this insanity knew exactly what they were doing and the consequences of it!
    A disgusting to the core piece of shyte legislation, which will endanger lives!
    Off the top of my head, the only worse piece of legislation, I can think of, which was passed in the Taig Republic in terms of direct life endangerment (Bank bailouts and sucking the Troika knob legislation, of course, ultimately cost more destroyed lives as an indirect result) was the one enacting the insane beyond comprehension constitutional ammendment, equating a woman's life in value terms to a foetus!

    A shocking reality, but the desired effect of a lot of the scum behind this law!

    Decriminalising sex work is the only way to protect women – and New Zealand has proved that it works

    In 2014, a sex worker pursued a brothel operator who had sexually harassed her through the Human Rights Tribunal. She won her case

    A recent spate of attacks on sex workers in Ireland since the law passed is probably linked to the Swedish Model driving the industry underground. Tweets on this below from sex workers:

    Sex workers are now reporting that violent clients are threatening them with Garda raids. Stop this, before there's a murder enquiry. ������

    We need repeal of brothel laws. Yesterday there were 3 attacks on sex workers, unrelated to recent attacks @SWAIIreland working so hard on.

    In these 'crazy' times , when allegedly, anything goes , our 'progressive' government maintains a victorian attitude to the activities of a large cohort of consenting adults.
    Strange. Perverse even.

    One of the FFers organising the Croke Park anti red light protests was also involved in a failed legal challenge to the Dail candidate gender quotas.

    Three separate robberies of sex workers in Dublin last night. Three. Well done @FitzgeraldFrncs, you must be so proud right now.

    Looks like opponents of the law were right it would put sex workers in more danger. The law criminalises them for working in groups indoors. Therefore they go on the streets in more danger.
