Ireland set to vote on same-sex marriage

flag-irelandOn Friday the Republic of Ireland goes to the polls in a referendum on same-sex marriage.

After a long campaign, opinion polls suggest same-sex marriage will pass into law, though by a significantly narrower margin than early polls which suggested a 4-to-1 margin in favour. One in five voters say they are still yet to make up their mind on the question.

If the referendum passes it will leave Northern Ireland as an oddity, with same-sex marriage legal both south of the border and in the other states of the UK.
