Ireland Votes "Yes'" to Gay Marriage

Recently, Ireland voted wether or not gay marriage should be legalized. 

The vote was 62 percent in favor, the rest were not. Since the majority rules, gay marriage was officially legalized in Ireland.

Senator Katherine Zappone and Ann Louise Gilligan have been trying to get the Irish governemnt to agree with them. They are a lesbian couple who want to get married in their homeland, but it hasn't been allowed for a long time. They married in Canada instead, but they're excited to finally have another wedding in Ireland.
