Many tweets and posts on social media I have spotted saying something like the following:

50% - Divorce referendum - 1995
62% - Marriage equality - 2015
68% - Repeal the 8th - 2018

Catholic Ireland has gone at long last!

AND:

The Irish people have pretty much shattered the shackles of the Catholic church bit by bit and this is the final nail in the coffin

Whats next to apparently further progress the republic?
Whats next to root out the Catholic Church from Irish Society .. as many people seem to be so eager to do?

So .. Where to next? ..what in your opinion are the next things that need be dismantled or brought in in the name of progress, love, fairness etc?

The ridiculous preamble to the constitution. Removal of religious influence from schools.

'The people have voted for a modern constitution for a modern country' (Leo Varadkar, earlier today).

I think the clauses in the constitution that prevent the govt forcing the Church to divest from schools need to be removed.

Can I qualify that a little? The teaching of religion is quite important. I just want the feckers away from the levers of power in these institutions.
