Cabinet Ministers have spent the morning working on the wording of the abortion referendum.
We'll find out the exact question early next month, with a vote expected to take place in late May.
Following today's meeting, the Health Minister said he was "confident" the timeline can be met, and revealed the exact date of the Referendum will be set following a debate and vote in the Dáil and Seanad.
"For the first time since 1983 the Irish people are to have their say on the substantive issue of the 8th Amendment and whether it should be removed from our Constitution", Simon Harris said in a statement.
"That referendum will propose that Article 40.3.3 is deleted in its entirety and a clause inserted that makes it clear that the Oireachtas may legislate to regulate termination of pregnancy."
"It is important to remember that the Referendum must be passed, and the 8th Amendment repealed, if anything is to change for Irish women. We need to change the status quo, for this to happen we must repeal the 8th. It is important that we are clear that if the people of Ireland do not repeal article 40.3.3 we cannot legislate for fatal foetal abnormality, rape, incest or women's health", he said.
The Minister explained that there are some "very important - and busy - weeks ahead", and he intends to publish a policy paper at the beginning of March which will outline what the legislation will include.
