World – Ireland says ‘yes’ to gay marriages


Large crowds gathered at Dublin Castle ahead of the result.

Figures suggest the Republic of Ireland has voted to legalise same-sex marriage in a historic referendum.

More than 3.2m people were asked whether they wanted to amend the country’s constitution to allow gay and lesbian couples to marry.

Government ministers have said they believe it will pass, while prominent “no” campaigners have conceded defeat.

A final result is expected late this afternoon.

If the change is approved, the Republic of Ireland would become the first country to legalise same-sex marriage through a popular vote.

Minister for Health Leo Varadkar, who earlier this year came out as the Republic of Ireland’s first openly gay minister, said the campaign had been “almost like a social revolution”.

    Thank you for posting this!

    I wonder when Barbados will stop promoting legal prejudice and recognize equality under the law for all.
