A SMALL number of no voters remain at the Waterford count centre as tally figures indicate the yes side is in the clear lead at 72%.
Around 80% of the boxes have been tallied in Waterford so far. Reacting to how the no campaigners were feeling leading campaigner John D Walsh said, “The word is devastated”. “There were a lot of people who dreaded the prospect of a yes vote. Those people feel terribly hurt and I feel very much for them. They put in a huge effort.”
