What GREAT news!!
On Saturday, it was reported that a referendum for gay marriage in Ireland will likely pass.
As of 11:17PM EST, the results are as follows: the Yes vote is running at 62.4% and the No vote 37.6%.
Wow, it seems like a LANDSLIDE victory at this point! We have to thank all of the Ireland natives who flew back home to cast their votes in favor of the referendum — we’re sure that played a big role in the victory!!
Minister for Equality Aodhan O Riordain said of the likely win:
“I’m calling it. Key boxes opened. It’s a yes. And a landslide across Dublin. And I’m so proud to be Irish today.”
Woot! Even if you’re not Irish, this is a fabulous day for the LGBT community and its supporters!!
