So when and how will we trigger an exit referendum here?

The result of Brexit will embolden euro skeptics all over Europe to campaign for their own referendums, Italy, France, Holland and Denmark may well hold their own referendums in the near future, at what stage should we abandon this sinking ship?

If the nation whose empire once spanned the globe manages to stand on its own two feet and thrives economically why should we remain squirming under this bureaucratic behemoth of an un-elected bloated Kleptocracy?

How can we force our greedy self serving party politicians to put their dreams of plum jobs and filthy lucre to the people in the form of a plebiscite?

Britain leaving the EU and Ireland remaining will mean huge opportunities for us. Why would we leave??

There's a difference in being a net contributor and a net beneficiary.

We are too small to leave and make an effective go of it and the EU would be much more likely to make an example of us then they will be of Britain, they have already shown their ruthless side with forcing us into massive public debt and with their treatment of Greece.
Britain is probably going to be badly hurt by their leaving too, I hope not but it seems likely.
Best case scenario is that the EU does some deep soul searching and instigates critically needed reform as a result of Brexit.

We're not squirming and the majority of us are pretty comfortable being European ;)

we are in the vice like grip of the EU fascist regime
Our political system is deeply infiltrated by traitorous EU ideologues.
Our media is bought and paid for by neoliberal
and big business interests.
Our children are regularly and quietly indoctrinated by pro EU propaganda in our schools

The Irish people are a beaten down gullible serf people suffering from a severe case of stockholm syndrome as regards the EU.

Sadly there is little hope of an IREXIT :(

We have been a huge beneficiary because of our membership of the EU. We will now see huge new opportunities as Britain has left. We would be mad to leave.

What huge opportunities can we expect if other countries leave?

Who would want to initiate the call - AAA/PBP mistakenly believe that an Irexit will miraculously transform Ireland into the ideal breeding ground for the Trotskyite revolution, and SF are too busy cosying up to Podemos and Syriza? Renua seem to be moving in a Eurosceptic direction, but their general policies are anathema to most, and the likes of Identity Ireland, DDI and the Peoples' Movement are fringe outfits at best.
