Here's where people will gather ahead of the referendum announcement tomorrow

Dublin Castle courtyard will be open to members of the public wanting to come together as the result of today's referendum vote is announced tomorrow.

An official announcement is expected by late afternoon, depending on how close the result is, and there had been calls for the courtyard to be opened to campaigners as it was for the announcement of the Marriage Referendum result in 2015.

Large crowds of LGBT campaigners gathered there and celebrated together when it was revealed that there had been a Yes vote for gay marriage.

"This has been a long campaign, thirty-five years in the making," said Labour councillor for Dublin South Central Rebecca Moynihan.

"It has ignited a new sense of activism among young people in our country. I think it is appropriate for Dublin Castle to be open to as many that want to attend, rather than just the select few who were randomly allocated tickets and accredited media."

It's been confirmed that there will be access to the Upper Yard of Dublin Castle, reports The Journal.

Anyone who comes along might not see the same bells and whistles as three years ago though.

As of this evening, there are no plans to erect screens in the courtyard.
