The decision is a major victory for Irish feminists, who have been fighting the law since it was introduced in 1983.
After 66.4% of the country voted to repeal the Eighth Amendment, there were jubilant scenes at Dublin Castle as the Taoiseach and number of Irish politicians were joined by members of the public. "I am especially grateful to the women of Ireland who came forward to provide their personal testimony about the hard times that they endured, the stress and the trauma that they experienced because of the eighth amendment".
"I'd like to thank the people of Limerick, they've showed great compassion".
"But she said "I'm sorry, unfortunately it's a Catholic country" and it's the law that they can't abort when the foetus is live". "Today we say, take our hand".
Sir Vince said the United Kingdom government should take advantage of the current lack of a devolved administration in Northern Ireland.
"It's incredible. For all the years and years and years we've been trying to look after women and not been able to look after women, this means everything", said Mary Higgins, obstetrician and Together For Yes campaigner.
For decades, thousands of Irish women sought abortions illegally each year.
Tanaiste Simon Coveney described it as a vote to put a "more compassionate and appropriate" policy in place, one that helped and respected women in vulnerable circumstances. As a result, Irish women would wished to terminate their pregnancies had to seek illegal options within the country - at the risk of being thrown in jail for 14 years - or travel overseas.

FILE PHOTO: People celebrate the result of yesterday's referendum on liberalizing abortion law, in Dublin, Ireland, May 26, 2018. The UK government allows Northern Irish women to access abortion freely on the NHS in Britain but appears unwilling to intervene directly by legislating to enable them to access care in Northern Ireland.
Chants of "Yes we did" rose from the crowd as the Referendum Commission's Returning Officer Barry Ryan announced the final results.
A socially conservative province where the Catholic and Protestant faiths exert strong influence, Northern Ireland allows abortion only when a mother's life is in danger.
The death of an Indian dentist ignited the abortion rights campaign in Ireland.
The group, in a statement on its website, said the voters had committed "a tragedy of historic proportions". "The day we came of age as a country". Lawmakers are now expected to debate proposed legislation allowing abortions within the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, and after that in cases of fetal abnormalities or serious risks to the mother's health.
Among the 40 constituencies, the pro-choice vote peaked at 78 percent in Dublin Bay South, while rural Donegal was the only one to vote against liberalising abortion, by 52 percent.
And they were supported by a prime minister who staked his political future on the outcome of this referendum and who himself is an embodiment of the new tolerant Ireland.
There were roars of approval Saturday when two women leaders of the Sinn Fein party raised a sign that read, "The North is next".
