Phone a friend and help keep UK in the EU
Encourage voters to help Ireland's interests by saying no to Brexit

Only 11 days remain until the June 23 referendum on the UK's membership of the EU. The opinion polls remain stubbornly close. Every single vote will count in the end, including those of Irish citizens in the UK and the wider group of the one-in-four UK residents who have some Irish heritage.
This is where every single one of us here in Ireland has an opportunity to contribute. While ultimately it is the voters in the UK who will decide the outcome, each of us can contribute to making the Irish case for the UK, as our closest neighbour and EU partner, to remain in the EU.
Ireland has a unique perspective on and interest in the outcome. Our relationship with the UK is closer than with any other EU member state and we are the only country sharing a land border with the UK - a border that would become an EU frontier if voters opt to leave.
