OVER HALF OF Irish people would like to see a united Ireland.

The findings are contained in a Claire Byrne Live/Amárach Research poll for that was carried out today.

The question was posed “Would you favour a united Ireland?”

The question was asked in the run-up to this weekend’s Easter Rising celebrations.

In total, 54% said Yes, 24% said No and 22% said that they don’t know. The splits were consistent across genders, but differed around the regions.

In Munster, 60% of people said Yes, but just 47% in Dublin said the same. No votes were also highest in Dublin, at 32%.

In one of the week’s other questions, 52% of people said that there should be a constitutional right to housing, as opposed to 29% who said no.

The final question asked respondents if they felt that 100 years on, Ireland was a more equal society.

In that poll, 59% said Yes, 30% said No and 11% said they don’t know.

The poll was conducted by Amárach Research on Monday, 21 March. The survey panel comprises more than 1,000 adults who all own a smartphone. More details here.
