Blasphemy will no longer be a punishable offence after the Irish public voted overwhelmingly in favour to remove the law from the constitution.
Following the Presidential Election result, the result for the referendum were confirmed late on Saturday night.
It is understood that a staggering 64.8% of the Irish public voted to change the law.
According to the final count a total 35.15% voted no to the proposed law change.
The vote now means that those who speak sacrilegiously against God or sacred things will no longer punished.
Under the current laws those found guilty of blasphemy face the prospect of receiving a €25,000.
