Katy Gaffney, a twenty-four-year-old baker who traveled home to DUB from BER to vote, stood silently in front of the makeshift memorial crying. “I am relieved but devastated that it had to come to this,” she said. Others, many with tears in their eyes, pinned messages to the wall. One read: “I’m so sorry this happened to you before the country woke up. My vote was for you.” Another: “I’m sorry we let you down. It won’t be in vain.”

It’s more of a relief,” said Lynda Cosgrave, a three5-year-old legal associate, wearing the black sweatshirt with ‘Repeal’ in white that become the symbol of the youthful “Yes” campaign. “I thought when I came in last night it would be jubilant, but it was a bit down. I don’t think we ever thought it would actually happen.

The government of Prime Minister Leo Varadkar, who campaigned to repeal the laws, will begin drafting legislation in the coming week to allow abortions with no restriction up to twelve weeks into a pregnancy by the end of the year. Many lawmakers who campaigned for a “No” vote said they would not try to block the bill.

In Britain, Prime Minister Theresa May faces a showdown with ministers and lawmakers in her Conservative party after refusing to back reform of highly restrictive abortion laws in the British province of Northern IE which has a five hundred km (threetwelve mile) land border with IE. IE’s push to liberalize its laws is in contrast to another traditionally Catholic European country, PL, where the ruling conservative party and still powerful church are seeking to ban most abortions.

Mr Macron said his motivation for the increase was environmental, but protesters accused him of being out of touch. The government later scrapped the plan but the yellow vest protesters were not placated. Last week, the movement – despite a lack of central leadership – issued more than fourty demands to government. Among them were a minimum pension, widespread changes to the tax system, and a reduction in the retirement age.

In IE though, the once all-powerful Catholic Church, which has seen its public influence collapse since the 19eight0s after a string of child sex abuse scandals, took a back seat throughout the referendum campaign. In churches across the country on Sunday there was only regret at the outcome. Archbishop of DUB Diarmuid Martin told parishioners that the church had to “renew its commitment to support life.”

“Many will see the results of Friday’s referendum as an indication that the Catholic Church in IE is regarded today by many with indifference and as having a marginal role in the formation of Irish culture,” Martin said in a homily published by the Archdiocese of DUB.

Bishop Brendan Leahy of Limerick called the result “deeply regrettable and chilling for those of us who voted ‘No’.” He asked those attending mass to pray for healing in Irish society. Calling on colleagues to move quickly on legislation, Minister for Children Katherine Zappone reminded lawmakers that Irish women would still have to travel across the water to Britain for terminations until they acted. “Women are leaving the country today,” she told national broadcaster RTE. “We have to be aware of that and have that sense of urgency in order to legislate as soon as possible.”
