THE IMMACULATE MISCONCEPTION is a story about belief, family, and honour. Sinead O’Reilly is a pregnant 16-year-old schoolgirl living in West Belfast with her grandparents Daniel and Bronagh O’Reilly.

Sinead’s underage pregnancy is both the last straw and unbeknownst to Bronagh, her salvation as she is thrown a dubious lifeline by their GP who informs Bronagh that ‘although pregnant Sinead is still a virgin’. If Bronagh can get the birth proclaimed immaculate by the Vatican then God only knows what is possible…
