The official results are coming in and they are overwhelmingly in favour of 'Yes'

The official results of yesterday's referendum are coming in and they are overwhelmingly in favour of 'Yes.'

Last night's exit polls indicated that the Irish public had voted to repeal the eighth amendment by almost 70 percent.

The official results of the referendum are finally starting to come in and they look to confirm the landslide win for the 'Yes' side.

So far, Galway East, Dublin Central, Cork South-Central, and Cork North-Central have returned their results - all in favour of 'Yes' by at least 60 percent.

The results so far are:

Galway East: Yes 60.2 percent, No 39.8 percent

Dublin Central: Yes 76.51 percent, No 23.49 percent

Cork South-Central: Yes 68.84 percent, No 31.16 percent

Cork North-Central: Yes 64.02 percent, No 35.98 percent

Wexford: Yes 88.4 percent, No 31.6 percent.

The full results are expected to be in by later this afternoon.
