Episode 10: It Is Done

“It always seems impossible until it is done.”- Nelson Mandela

The final episode of The Eighth is a fly on the wall audio journey with Ciara from her hearing the exit poll results through to the final result in Dublin Castle. Featuring a range of voices throughout the day, with special thanks to my sister Evie, my Mam Róisín, Shane, Sharon, Morgan, and Ciara.

Special thanks to Alan and the whole HeadStuff crew for their tireless support, encouragement and help in making this series.

And the biggest thank you of all to my partner in Repeal, Paddy.

We did it.

It Is Done.
