    Ok. It passed. We thought it would, and it did. And I’m delighted.
    Now, can we PLEASE drop the blanket coverage?
    Enough already!

      Or maybe it’s one of the most significant events since the founding of the state so and has global implications, so maybe the coverage is entirely warranted.

        In a world where LGBTQ persons are persecuted daily, and considering the history of prejudice and marginalization in this country, I think blanket coverage for a short while is entirely warranted.

      Well done people. Special mention to the weather. Will all be over by Monday. Please God.

      Ah here. You write that at 20 past the hour AFTER the day our country changed for the better. Have a word with yourself pal.

      Really? The day after a referendum, a huge and wide reaching referendum, you’d have the papers cover what exactly? What would you have on the front page?

    I see Lidl have muscled in on Aldi territory by offering a ten euro voucher off shopping in the Sunday Independent; there’s nothing like sibling rivalry… FIGHT!

    It is a leading story in Australia. Aussie politicians were asked about the gay marriage situation in Australia, during the Sunday morning political shows. This is big. Well done, Ireland.

        It has rekindled the issue, in Australia.

        This Labor front bencher has changed his position:

        “The referendum in Ireland should leave every Australian politician in no doubt. The debate about marriage equality will only end with one decision. That decision will be to legislate for two people to marry at law regardless of gender.”

        Two popular (OK, left leaning) journalists have tweeted these:
        “Ireland, once a priest-ridden theocracy, looks like okaying same sex marriage. What a nest of timorous pissants we have in Canberra.”

        “Dear Australian political class – it’s a good indicator of how out of touch you are when even Ireland is more progressive than you.”

    Ok, this is probably the only time I’ll ever say this, but the Sun have totally nailed the front cover. What a headline!
