Welcome to the republic of love.
The Yes vote in Ireland has made the country the first
country to legalise marriages between couples of same-
sex via a referendum.
In a celebration of the victory for the gay and lesbian
community, Senator Katherine Zappone proposed to her
long standing partner during a rally.
Senator Zappone and her partner Ann Louise Gilligan
were married in Canada because Ireland had not yet
legalised same-sex marriages.
According to Gilligan, “I said yes 12 years ago in
Canada and now we are bringing the yes home. Yes,
yes, yes! Today we are free! Yes, yes, yes.”
