Ireland Votes in Historic Referendum on Gay Marriage

Ireland took to the polls on Friday to vote on whether same-sex marriage should be legal, in a referendum that has exposed sharp divisions between communities in this traditionally Catholic nation.
Allowing gay couples to wed would be a seismic change in a country where homosexuality was only decriminalised in 1993, and where abortion remains illegal except where the mother's life is in danger.
Voter Eoghan Bonass said"A lot of my gay friends want to get married. I feel it's a simple matter of equality, This referendum has touched a chord. I've noticed there's far more awareness about this one than previous ones,"
