Ireland approves gay marriage and it was by popular votes!

Ireland has become the first country in the world to approve gay marriage by popular vote after more than 1.2million people overwhelmingly backed allowing same-sex unions in a historic referendum.
Ballots from all 43 constituencies have now been counted and official figures show 62.1 per cent supported the reform, with the highest turnout at a referendum in Ireland in over two decades.         
Celebrations spilled out into the streets as 'Yes' supporters gathered in the grounds of Dublin Castle, cheering and waving rainbow flags, while the results from the landslide victory came through. 
Ireland's equalities minister Aodhán Ó Ríordáin lost his composure as the result became clear, tweeting: 'Ireland hasn't just said "Yes"... Ireland has said: "F*** YEAAHHHH"'.
