Dublin City Councillors have agreed they should honour Savita Halappanavar by naming a street in her memory.
The 31 year old dentist died from sepsis after miscarrying at four months in a Galway hospital in October 2012.
She had asked for a termination before she fell critically ill but was told she couldn't while there was still a foetal heartbeat.
Although councillors last night voted in favour of a motion put forward by People Before Profit's Tina MacVeigh, they do not have the authority to name streets. It means the motion was struck out by Lord Mayor.
Councillor MacVeigh has told 98FM News she put forward the proposal to acknowledge the tragedy of the loss of Savita's life.
"Behind Savita's name are the tens of thousands of other women in Ireland who have experienced difficulties and have been victims of our draconian laws which govern our reproductive care and rights in the health system."
The Inchicore councillor stresses that although they do not have the power to name streets, it's significant that most local reps agree it should happen.
Lord Mayor Brendan Carr says it's up to residents of a street to request if they want to rename it after Savita.
