The pro-choice campaign Together For Yes has said that it raised and spent €1.5 million in its bid to repeal the Eighth Amendment.

This was significantly more than the main No campaign group, Save The 8th, which said that it raised and spent around €650,000.

The total amount spent by organisations in the referendum campaign will be not clear until the electoral watchdog Sipo produces its spending report later this year.
