Despite its centuries of rigid Catholicism, The Republic of Ireland, aka Eire, became the first nation in the world to legalize same-sex marriage by popular vote. The election was held Saturday, May 23, 2015. The results via The Guardian:

All the results are in, and the returning officer, Ríona Ní Fhlanghaile, has declared that Ireland has passed the same-sex marriage referendum by 1,201,607 votes to 734,300. That’s 62.1% yes to 37.9% no. The total turnout was 60.5%.

Crowds gathered in front of Dublin Castle to celebrate this victory for equal rights for LGBTQ people.

It’s a meaningful vote for the LGBTQ community and allies of Washington State as we also passed similar legislation by a popular vote.

Éirinn go Brách
