The people of Clare have voted in favour of repealing the Eight Amendment.

54,576 individuals in the county turned out to vote in an electorate of 83,225 with one hundred and sixty nine spoiled votes.

In total, 34, 328 voted for YES (63%) and 19,079 for NO (37%).

Three years on from the Marriage Equality Referendum, there was an increase in the turnout of Clare voters. 65.5% of those on the Register of Electors used their democratic right on Friday, compared with 59.4% for the 2015 Referendum.

The Clare Echo will have more reaction and analysis to the outcome of the Referendum in Thursday’s paper and online.
