With just days to go until the vote on the eighth amendment, RTÉ is due to host its final debate tonight. 

Miriam O'Callaghan and David McCullagh will host a specially extended Prime Time programme tonight at 9:35 pm on RTÉ One, which will see both sides debate the issue in front of a live studio audience who will also contribute to the debate.

The No side will be represented by solicitor and Love Both campaigner Cora Sherlock and Sinn Féin TD Peadar Tóibín. 

Speaking for the Yes campaign will be Health Minister, Simon Harris and Prof. Mary Higgins, Consultant Obstetrician and Together for Yes campaigner.

Complaints were made to the broadcaster for a similar RTÉ debate last week, hosted by Claire Byrne.

A lot of people took to Twitter to express their anger over the clapping and jeering from the audience. 

Some people also mentioned that the 'No' side got more air time but the state broadcaster released a statement saying equal air time was given to both sides.
