Ireland to hold referendum on blasphemy laws

The Republic of Ireland will hold a referendum on whether to change its laws against blasphemy.

It is expected that the vote will be held on the same day as the Presidential election, which is likely to take place in October.

The move is part of a commitment made in the programme for government.

Justice Minister Charlie Flanagan said the referendum would mark an "important step" in Ireland's "international reputation"
