“It is fair to say that the event has been a remarkable success”, commented Annette Hickey, head of Surrogacy & Fertility law, Poe Kiely Hogan Lanigan Solicitors, “When we first got involved we knew there was a demand for information of this nature, however, given the overwhelming interest and attendance, I believe there is a real demand for more information and clearer laws regarding surrogacy and fertility matters in Ireland.”
