Shows the importance of removing religion from the "state". Ireland is a modern thinking Country, and it has experienced and had enough of oppression !

good for them, from the pictures, it made so many people happy ^^ The no side was just using kids and religion to promote bigotry so good for the Majority for making it legal and not listening to that side

Wow....this one amazes me. They let a woman not that long ago, that wasn't even a citizen and didn't have the same faith die because they wouldn't allow her an abortion even to save her life.....yet on this, they are the first Country in the world.

I'm happy for everyone.....but how people think has my head spinning. Now might they not let women die?

Dandelion G. may I respectfully say please look up the inquest for poor Savita (may she rest in peace), she died because she had the worst case of Sepsis the specialist had seen and poor management of her case. Termination of pregnancies happened in Ireland at the time when it was necessary to save the life of the Mother and was about to happen but sadly Savita died. Her nationality or faith had nothing to do with it, please inform yourself fully before you condemn us. The same week an Irish lady died in a taxi in England following an abortion, the media never told that story. Thankfully, we can freely vote on issues in our country.

Great news. Ireland is not the first country to allow same-sex marriages, before came Netherlands,Belgium,Brazil,Spain,South-Africa,Iceland,Canada,Luxemburg,Norway,Portugal,France,Sweden,Finland,Slovenia,Denmark,Uruquay,New Zealand,England,Wales,Scotland.
Still the list of countries where it is not allowed is too long.
Everyone should be allowed to love and marry whomever they wanted and have the same rights.

Ulane , Ireland wasn't the first. But it was the first to do so by popular vote. :)
