Hurray! Ireland votes 'Yes' to same-sex marriage
Counting is ongoing, but reportedly both the 'Yes' and 'No' sides in the Irish debate are now declaring the pro-equality side has won the referendum in Ireland to legalize same-sex marriage in the country.
What a great result! A great day for equality and inclusion in this world! Those who despair at the hatred and lack of understanding in the world can look to this result and take comfort, I say.
For more news on this, check out the BBC website story above or the CBC's coverage.
The full results are mostly in and can be viewed here on Elections Ireland's website. The Yes side has over 62% support!
