Open thread: What are your thoughts on Scotland's big decision?

Are you disappointed this morning or glad that there is still a United Kingdom across the water?

MANY PEOPLE ACROSS the country stayed up last night, glued to television reports from count centres on the other side of the Irish Sea.

As the Taoiseach said today, Ireland and Scotland have always been partners, neighbours and friends so the interest in the independence referendum was significant.

Some among the Irish population drew parallels with Northern Ireland’s situation, while others just wanted to see a massive democratic process play out in a peaceful manner.

How do you feel about the vote today? Are you glad there is still a United Kingdom with Scotland involved? Or are you disappointed that the population decided against independence?

Do you agree with Gerry?

Or with Ed Miliband?

Or maybe with J.K Rowling’s democratic musings?

Let us know your thoughts below.
