A Kerry TD says the young population played a huge part in the outcome of the referendum.

Sinn Féin TD Martin Ferris, who called for a Yes vote, believes the majority of young people viewed the Eighth Amendment as a terrible injustice to women.

He adds the houses of the Oireachtas now have a duty to follow through on the wishes of the Irish people.
