Marriage Equality: continuity and change in Ireland after the referendum


The posters about the "Marriage Equality" are still in place here in the streets of Dublin, several days after the referendum of 22 May and the official announcement, during the following afternoon, that 62.07 percent of voters had chosen a change in the Constitution of the Republic of Ireland, in order to allow the "Same-sex marriage", the first case in the world of a country called to vote to allow such a change. The turnout was very high, 60 and a half percent, comparable to that in the historic referendum on the 1937 constitution (which recorded a 76 per cent of voters) and that of 1972 on the European Union (where the turnout reached 71 percent and whose vote led, a year later, the aggregation of the republic to the six founding countries of the EU).
