Over the past 15 hours, 3.3 million Irish citizens had the opportunity to vote in the referendum to repeal or maintain the 8th amendment.
As of 10pm, the polls are closed, and everyone has cast their vote in the ballot box to be counted tomorrow.
Early reports showed that this referendum has had an exceptionally high voter turn out – here's what some of the voters had to say on this historic day:
My polling station is a Catholic primary school. For some reason the usual signs directing you to the polling station aren’t there. It’s almost as if they don’t want you to find it. Hmmm. #IVotedYes #together4Yes

Am I the only one who was suddenly nervous in the booth thinking "I could really f**k this up"? It feels odd to mark an X for Yes, my hand really wanted to make a big teacher's tick #IvotedYes

Became a citizen 5 months ago, started campaigning 3 months ago, voted at 7am on the dot and haven’t stopped crying since. For a safer, better, more inclusive Ireland for women #ivotedyes #repealth8th

I’m tired of the Godless and hedonistic attitudes of my generation. We are priveledged to live in a country that cherished human life. We need to teach and pass on good values, of faithfulness, love and sex in loving relationships. #IVotedNo

17 years, 3 months & 2 weeks after being forced to deliver our son Joshua in another country, #WeVotedYes to ensure no-one else has to make that journey, no matter their reason. #IvotedYes #Together4Yes pic.twitter.com/U1zq26zYts

#IVotedNo, might be a losing battle but morally my conscience is clear.

Yesterday I went to a playground a few minutes from my home in Tuam.
While my son played, I went through the gap in the wall to the spot where the Tuam Babies are buried.
The eye of the storm.
Today I went to my sons' school, a few minutes in the other direction, and #IvotedYes

Well, I did it. Let's hope I wake up tomorrow with more rights over my own body than today.#IvotedYes
