The majority of Irish people want to abolish the bi-annual clock change.
The European Commission opened a public consultation in July - and received 4.6 million responses.
This is the highest number of responses ever received in any public consultation from the commission.
It shows 84% are in favour of putting an end to changing the clocks.
While 88% of Irish people who took part want the change abolished - with only 12% suggesting it should stay.

Other high rates for the removal of the change were in Croatia (90%), Lithuania (91%) and Finland and Portugal (both 95%).
The only EU member states that wanted to keep it were Greece Cyprus - at 56% and 53%.
The European Commission will now make a proposal to the European Parliament and Council, with a view of changing the arrangements.
Since 1996, all Europeans have been changing their clock forward by one hour on the last Sunday of March and back by one hour on the last Sunday of October.
