#143 | Emma De Souza and the Good Friday Agreement

Sep 10, 2020, 11:00 PM

Emma De Souza joins Darach and Gearóidín to talk about a battle for the integrity of the Good Friday Agreement.

Once upon a time there was a young woman from Derry called Emma who loved dogs, baking and movies. She didn’t think about politics very often. Then she met a Californian called Jake and fell in love. She had no idea that she was about to find herself in the middle of a half-decade-long legal battle which would open a can of worms at a time when Anglo-Irish relations were already being tested.

On today’s episode, Emma De Souza joins Darach and Gearóidín to talk about how applying for a residency card for her husband before the Brexit referendum led to a battle for the integrity of the Good Friday Agreement.

Emma and Jake’s courtcases for the rights of all Irish citizens in the North have led to a significant legal bill - you can help them at their GoFundMe page here:
