SAD DAY: Ireland overturns abortion ban

The Republic of Ireland has voted overwhelmingly to overturn the abortion ban by 66.4% to 33.6%.
A referendum held on Friday resulted in a landslide win for the repeal side.
The Eighth Amendment, which grants an equal right to life to the mother and unborn, will be replaced.
The declaration was made at Dublin Castle at 18:13 local time.
The only constituency to vote against repealing the Eighth amendment was Donegal, with 51.9% voting against the change.
