Gay Star News reports:
Eamon Gimore, the Tánaiste, said there will likely be a referendum on the issue after an overwhelming majority of the Constitutional Convention think-tank voted to recommend it. But a spokesman for the Labour party politician has said he wants to push for legislation to allow gay couples to adopt children before Ireland votes on marriage equality. ‘Any referendum that takes place will have to be about marriage equality and not about other issues,’ he said. Speaking at a Labour Youth meeting over the weekend, Gilmore suggested autumn 2014 or spring 2015 as possible dates.
The last poll that we have, From January, shows that 75% of Irish citizens support marriage equality.
