Irish support same-sex marriage
Sixty-one percent of the Irish support legalization of same-sex marriage, according to a new Irish Independent/Millward Brown Lansdowne survey. Only 27 percent oppose it.
Support is strongest among young people, women, Labour voters and Dubliners. It is weakest among people over 65 and farmers.
Ireland has a civil-partnership law that provides same-sex couples with many of the rights and obligations of marriage, but gay campaigners say separate is not equal.
