Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has said he is confident legislation to reform the State’s abortion laws will be in place by the end of this year.
Mr Varadkar, who is favour of repealing the Eighth Amendment and allowing for terminations up to 12 weeks, expressed confidence the referendum on the matter will be held by May and said new legislation could be in place within a matter of months.
