It's been an exhausting journey since the referendum was called last year and I think we can all safely say that we don't want another one anytime soon.

The landmark vote has however, given rise to some great memes (mostly courtesy of Irish Simpsons fans), and as the dust begins to settle on a historic day for the country, it's only fair we go through some of the best memes of the referendum.

Roscommon have received a lot of plaudits after the county voted in favour of repealing the 8th. The Rossies were criticised heavily after they voted against Marriage Equality in 2015, but are back in the good books as these memes demonstrate:
