Share this article


With just hours left for people to cast their votes in the abortion referendum, there's been a high turnout reported so far.

An early rush of voters across the country before work saw a much larger than normal turnout in many parts of the country.

In Dublin and the commuter belt counties many polling stations have hit 30% turnout, with Belmont Avenue in Donnybrook hitting 47% turnout before 3.00pm.

One box at St John of Gods in Waterford has also hit 47% turnout.

Largely the number of voters has slowed down ahead of the anticipated evening rush as people get off work.

But there's still a decent turnout.

Earlier Donegal town reported a 32% turnout

Counties like Laois, Westmeath and Offaly in the Midlands are consistently showing between 24% and 26% turnout.

The number of people who were added to the supplementary register and have voted is higher than the general trend.

Polls close at 10.00pm.

Many in polling stations across the country think turnout will be higher than the same-sex marriage referendum.
