Sarah made the claim on Monday's episode of 4FM's Niall Boylan Show.

Asked if she had the right to vote, Sarah said: "I do not. Certainly not in referendums. I've actually spoken to you about this in the past, that even though I'm a taxpayer I can't. I was sent a polling card.

"I went down to my polling station, they couldn't believe it either," she said. "But I was on the list so I voted.

"When I went down there the lady who checked me in, she knows me because I live in the country and she said: 'I never knew you were Irish!' And I said 'No, I'm not.' And she said: 'Well, you can't vote...' but she said 'You have a polling card', so she looked me up on the list and there I was. But I'm not supposed to."

Sarah, who claims that she voted No, also told Boylan that people working at her polling station told her that by the end of the day, between 60 and 80 people were "non-nationals with polling cards who voted".

She also made the claim that she has heard of several people that were eligible to vote who were issued multiple polling cards.
