• Local new story: mariage equality

    Enda Kenny, the taoiseach of Ireland, announced that 22 May would be his preferred day for a referendum on marriage equality. In May, Ireland could become the first country in the world to pass marriage equality by a popular, national vote.

    To get this far is nothing short of a phenomenal achievement. Homosexuality was only decriminalised in 1993; the Civil Partnership Act passed in 2010. But nowadays, hearts and minds has changed. So, Ireland is staging a referendum that enjoys support from all major political parties and the majority of the public, something unimaginable just a decade ago.


    RESULT : Irish voted YES !


    An opinion poll published in the Irish Times late last year found more than two thirds of voters would back gay marriage in a referendum.
