Independent TD Thomas Pringle insists that Donegal will still return a yes vote in the abortion referendum.
The Killybegs-based Dail Deputy has been a steady yes campaigner from the outset of this campaign.
And despite strong suggestions early on that Donegal could return a no vote, he is insistent that Donegal will vote in favour of repealing the Eighth Amendment.
“I texted a friend two weeks ago and I said that it will be a 52% yes vote and I am sticking by that.
“I know there are early suggestions that Donegal will vote no but I still feel that will change and that Donegal will eventually vote yes,” he said.
Deputy Pringle added that he is hopeful that Donegal, despite a tradition of voting no in referendums, will finally vote yes this time around.
“I think that as a people and a county we have changed in the past couple of years and I welcome that,” he said.
