The Government is expected to hold an emergency Cabinet meeting this morning after the UK voted to leave the EU.
It is expected the Taoiseach Enda Kenny and Minister for Foreign Affairs Charlie Flanagan will address the media early this morning at Government Buildings.
A statement from the Government said the vote had “very significant implications” for Ireland.
“The Government notes the outcome of the UK EU referendum this morning,” read the statement.
“This result clearly has very significant implications for Ireland, as well as for Britain and for the European Union.
“The Government will meet later this morning to reflect on the result. Following that meeting, the Taoiseach will make a public statement.”
The Taoiseach's statement is expected to take place at around 11am.
The vote has lead to calls for an Irish unity vote in the North after it voted for the Remain side in the referendum.
440,707 (56%) people voted to Remain and 349,442 (44%) voted to Leave in the North.
