Twitter Reacts To Enda Kenny Claiming The 8th Amendment Is 'Too Sensitive' For A Referendum

Enda Kenny has been making the rounds on Irish media along with other party leaders prior to the election on Friday.

The Taoiseach and Fine Gael leader appeared on Ireland AM on TV3 this morning to discuss how the campaign has gone and had some interesting things to say about a possible referendum on repealing the 8th Amendment to the constitution to allow for free safe and legal abortion in the country.

He said that Fine Gael if re-elected would set up something akin to the Constitutional Convention to consider the matter.

According to a recent poll by The Irish Times, 64% of Irish people are in favour of repealing the amendment, so many on Twitter are criticising Kenny for avoiding the issue this morning.
