May 2015 - Irish Marriage Referendum

28 May 2015 by Pure Radio

On Friday Ireland voted on the issue of marriage equality.

A referendum was required because the country’s constitution defines marriage, and to prevent legal challenges to same-sex marriages they wanted to tweak the wording – so to change the constitution requires the say of the people.

They had weeks of debates on television and radio, not to mention on the streets – where there were also posters for both sides of the campaign.

Emotions were running high by the day of the referendum. Under the Rainbow spoke to a few people in Dublin’s LGBT community.
