Polling stations are anticipating a tea-time rush as voting continues in the EU Fiscal Treaty referendum.

Turn-out has been fairly slow so far, although some areas of the country have reported the number of voters picked up this afternoon.

Voter turnout in Kerry is averaging around 8%, some parts of Offaly have registered a 15% turnout.

It is roughly around 12% across county Clare.

Turnout in Dublin is ranging from as low as 6% up to 12%, while Cork is reporting lower numbers than voted in the Presidential election and referenda last year.

Polling stations remain open until 10pm tonight with the majority of people expected to have their say after 5pm this evening.
