I would have a lot of sympathy for the posters who voted no in good faith. It can't be easy losing today. However I think on balance this was the right result. Article 8 was hypocrisy, exporting the problem to pagan England. And McGuirk is odious.

This referendum has nothing to do with the church. It's about the future murder/ genocide of innocent babies. The yes side celebrating their win is deeply disturbing.
It was about where abortion happens, Rudi. The 8th Amendment exported abortion..

Irish people will be in the minority in their own Country by 2050. This knew law will just speed things up. As someone who is from the North and for the first time ever I've said this, I hope we never have a United Ireland.
Is abortion enough to get you singing GSTQ or is it a pox on both their houses ?

Wonderful result.

68-32 was beyond anybody's wildest expectations.

I'm thrilled for the women of Ireland and thrilled that the people of Ireland saw through the disgusting, horrible No campaign in such numbers. 

The Ireland that is thankfully gone imagined itself above all as simple, religious and God-fearing in opposition to cruel, Godless England. In reality Ireland was the much crueller place. 

As England threatens to fall into the depths of intolerance and foolishly looks backward, we are now very much the ones looking forward - liberal, tolerant, outward looking, internationalist, welcoming.

We've come of age as a country in so many respects over the last few years.

We can improve in so many more, but overall, we're not a bad little place, really.

It''s a good result but should have happened a long time ago. In the big picture sexual rights are cheap. It doesnt cost anything to
recognise gay marriage or abortion rights and the church is downsizing anyway.
Economic rights are much harder to achieve. Civil rights are too. The "Deep.State" is incompetznt. The country needs to be reformed from the bottom up .

The sly digs are flying in today.

In 'fairness' that Galway team in 2013 had Comer, Shane Walsh and Ian Burke all in the same forward line.
Roscommon had a forward line of C Murtagh,D Smith and E Smith. From what i recall It was really a Connacht final that Roscommon lost more than Galway won.

Is there a procedure there to allow for the Galway lads to transfer their 2013 winners medals for the Connacht and All Ireland U21 over to what should have been (by the sounds of it) the rightful winners?
Bit of a disgrace if there’s not really.
The 1925 All Ireland was worse

I haven't the time or interest to trawl the stats but I'd estimate around 8/900 murders in this State this Century "the golden age of Syfdom".

20 years ago me and wifey could afford to buy a houseen Syf.
2 young people of similar jobs/incomes now can't in 90% of the State.
How is that better.
People on low incomes in 1998 were able to get Social housing pretty quickly.
2018......different story.
20 years ago you could get a hospital appointment pretty quickly -now unless you're at death's door you could have to wait up to 2 tears !!!!
Villages had shops and post offices in 1998.
Towns had loads of busy pubs.
But you continue in your little inexperienced (FG supporting?)bubble.

PS I'll concede on the motorway network where it exists.

The poor woman.

Better standard of living, massive technological advancements and the horrors of the Catholic Church with its tentacles in all aspects of Irish life starting to fade from living memory. Our economy is fast developing a large high-value services and IT industry that is envied by many of our bigger western neighbours who still struggle with high unemployment. The church’s inability to even play much of a role in this referendum speaks volumes for the positive, secular humanism that has came to dominate most younger peoples’ outlooks in the last two decades. People care about others more, at least enough to promote a more inclusive society for LGBTQ, disabled and ethnic minorities. This was barely exsistence even twenty years ago. It may have been a grand place for a white, able-bodied straight person but please talk to just one person who doesn’t conform to that norm and see if they found the Ireland of 1998 or 1988 more welcoming to them.

People are able to get divorced, marry who they like, and hopefully tomorrow will know they can get critical medical care at home too. The days when those in power could shove huge social issues under the carpet are gone. Thankfully.
Shorter Syf. Stop whining about a council house. Haven't you got Facebook..

It is funny that the media focus is on "Yes" versus "No". It is very hard to get either as an answer to a question in Ireland. This is because there is no "yes" or "no" in Irish.
Maybe "Why would I" and "Why wouldn't I" would be closer to the vernacular.

One of the saddest things this year was the murder of this young girl!

A 13 year old boy has been charged with her murder.

13 years of age!!!!

This really was horrific. And coupled with the Jastine Valdez murder the next week. These aren’t the sorts of deaths you associate with modern Ireland. I hope it’s just a terrible coincidence both happened so close together.

Looks like there was a sexual crime as well. Porn usage will have to be investigated.
