I hope it's true. Now we will see the true nature of the EU. They will not accept this NO vote and will either force Ireland to hold another referendum or find a way to work around it. The Irish government has already held secret talks in Brussels to get around a 'NO' vote.
Democracy my arse.
UPDATE: RTE are now reporting that most constituencies are voting NO.
UPDATE 2: It looks like it could be about 60% NO 40% YES. That's a big NO to the EU.
UPDATE 3: Gordon Brown has apparently promised Sarkozy that he will press ahead with the ratification process. Why?
UPDATE 4: Looks like it is more likely to be nearer 55% - 45%.
UPDATE 5: It is official!!! Ireland votes NO (53.4%) to the Lisbon Treaty.
The results will be issued at 16:00 - ish.
