The Politics Show went to Cork to take the temperature ahead of the referendum on the Lisbon treaty.

The treaty emerged out of the ashes of the EU constitution, and Ireland is the only country which by law is obliged to put it to its people for approval.

There's a massive campaign on the yes side- all the main political parties are campaigning in favour of the treaty- but it's close enough to cause worry in Brussels.

Paola Buonadonna talked to all sides.
