    Is the Irish vote going down to the wire?

With just four days until Ireland votes in the only referendum to be held on the EU’s Lisbon Treaty, recent polls give a contradictory picture.

The TNS poll out a few days ago has been the only poll so far to show the No side in the lead, by 35-30, but with a massive 35% of respondents undecided.

However, a Red C poll this weekend has shown the Yes camp back with its nose in front by 42-39, and with undecideds now down to 19%.

New Taioseach Brian Cowen has weighed in to the debate, accusing the No supporters of “sheer inaccuracy and absurdity” – will his outspoken comments help the Yes vote scrape over 50%?

On the markets, after a period when No was ahead, Yes is now a clear favourite at 1.34 on Betfair.
