Over 1,000 adults were asked their thoughts on the issue earlier today.

They were also asked if the government should seize church land and property to compensate victims of clerical or institutional abuse. Some 69% said Yes, 17% said No and 14% were unsure.

People were also asked if they believed that Irish citizens living outside the Republic should be entitled to vote in Irish elections. Half (53%) said Yes, while 37% said No and 10% were unsure.
