One in five people are still dont know what way they'll vote in the upcoming referendum on the Eighth Amendment.

A new Ipsos/MRBI poll in today's Irish Times shows a drop in support for the pro-choice side.

47% are in favour of repeal, down from 56, while the no side has also gone down one point to 28%.

The only rise is in the number of people who are undecided, which has gone up to 20% from 15% in January.

The poll also suggests a clear age and urban/rural divide on the issue, with younger people and urban voters more likely to favour the yes side.

1,200 people were polled on Monday and Tuesday of this week.
