SPEAKING IN PHILADELPHIA this afternoon, Taoiseach Enda Kenny has said the Government has decided to allow a referendum which would allow emigrants vote for an Irish president.

If passed, it would mean those North of the border would be able to cast their vote for the first time.

So, this evening we’re asking: Are you in favour of giving emigrants the right to vote in a presidential election?
