Welcome to Irish Voters Decide

Welcome to the Irish Voters Decide website.  This site will contain a set of tables and charts updated from Richard Sinnott’s 1995 book, Irish Voters Decide: Voting Behaviour in Elections and Referendums since 1918.  We hope this site will provide some useful background information for understanding trends in Irish elections and referendums.
