After weeks of intense campaigning on both sides the Eighth Amendment referendum is drawing to close with the Yes and No sides holding their final campaign events yesterday.

While polls show a clear lead for Yes, the No campaign is mounting a last-ditch effort to move the undecideds to its side and convince soft Yes voters that the government’s proposals to legislate for abortion in the event of repeal go too far.

The Sunday Business Post’s Public Affairs Editor Mary Regan is joined by Political Correspondent Hugh O’Connell to discuss the final hours of the campaign ahead of Friday’s vote.
