Voters in Ireland and the Czech Republic have been voting on the second day of European elections.

In the European Parliament 11 seats go to MEPs from the Republic of Ireland, while the Czech Republic gets 21 seats. The Czechs will also vote on Saturday.

The UK and the Netherlands held their elections on Thursday.
