In a recent poll, four out of five Irish people said its neighbour the UK was wrong to leave the EU: http://www.irishtimes.com/news/politics/four-out-of-five-irish-voters-say-uk-was-wrong-to-leave-eu-1.2712755 // The article quotes a supposed “Ireland Exit” spokesperson – but neither this group, nor its website, nor the unidentified ‘spokesperson’ could be found.
