    Google has said there was a dramatic spike in searches for Irish passport applications as news of the UK's decision to leave the EU broke.

    The overwhelming majority of the searches came from Northern Ireland.

    The search giant also reported more searches for "what happens if we leave the EU" around midnight on 23 June and for other phrases such as "British independence day" and "Norway EU".

    I still can't believe that so many people didn't bother googling those questions until after the referendum.
