Fianna Fáil has confirmed that it will not be putting up posters during the referendum on the Eighth Amendment and it will not be supporting either side during the campaign.

However the party's TDs, senators & members are free to support either side.

Earlier this year, leader Mícheál Martin told the Dáil that he favoured repealing the Eighth Amendment.

Yesterday Fine Gael said it would not be putting up its own posters but would be supporting the Together for Yes campaign which will have 20,000 posters.

While the Cabinet has supported the campaign to repeal the Eighth Amendment, the Fine Gael parliamentary party has a free vote on the issue.
