The Irish No

Early unofficial vote tallies around Ireland are indicating a strong showing for the No vote in a referendum on the European Union’s Lisbon Treaty.

In Irish polls, tally counters in each constituency watch votes being sorted and make their own count, giving early indications of how a vote is going. Broadcaster RTE reports the No vote is ahead, but the Yes side has regained some ground as the day progresses. A No vote would scupper the EU treaty, which must be ratified by all members.

Another crisis of identity in the EU, I start …wandering!!!
