Share this article


Michael D Higgins is set to easily be re-elected as President of Ireland, two exit polls have suggested.

An Irish Times poll, conducted by Ipsos/MRBI, has projected Mr Higgins will win more than 55% of the vote.

It shows Peter Casey in second place on 21%.

A separate RTÉ / Red C poll shows Michael D Higgins with 58.1% of first preference votes, while also putting Peter Casey in second place on 21%.

In the blasphemy referendum, the polls suggest a comfortable 'Yes' vote - with the RTÉ poll putting the vote at 71% Yes, and a slightly lower 69% in the Irish Times poll.

Counting will officially get underway tomorrow from 9am.
