Was it a scoop, or not…

This story was one of several that caught my eye this morning. Conor at Dublin Opinion took it further and discovered that someone at Independent Newspapers had jumped the gun over the report on the Eurobarometer survey (the nearest equivalent of an exit poll to find out why people voted the way they did in the referendum). Of course, this could be scoop for Conor, or, indeed for the Indo. We await the final outcome!
