An exit poll has indicated a strong showing for the Green Party in the European elections.
Polls closed across the country at 10pm in the local and European elections, as well as the divorce referendum and three plebiscites on directly elected mayors.
A RedC exit poll for RTÉ and TG4 shows the Green Party's Ciaran Cuffe is set to top the poll in Dublin for the European elections, while they're in contention for seats in the other two constituencies.

The poll - which involved 3,230 voters around the country - has a margin of error of 4%.
According to the poll, Fine Gael's Seán Kelly and Mairead McGuinness are set to top the European poll in the South and Midlands North West respectively.
However, it also indicates there'll be a close race for the remaining seats in all constituencies.
Fine Gael could take two seats in MNW, with a serious battle between that party's Maria Walsh and current independent MEP Luke Ming Flanagan.
In the South, the poll shows Sinn Féin MEP Liadh Ni Riada on 13%, Fianna Fáil's Billy Kelleher on 13% and the Green's Grace O'Sullivan on 12%.
Meanwhile, the poll suggests the divorce referendum is set to pass by an overwhelming majority of 87%.
Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael are shown in the lead in the local elections at 23% each, and the poll again shows strong support for the Green Party there at 9%.
