Support for marriage equality in Ireland is reached truly astounding levels, as the country prepares for referendum on the issue in 2015.

Pink News reports:

The first poll since the announcement of a same-sex marriage referendum has found that 76% of Irish voters support the legislation. Ireland’s cabinet this week formally agreed to hold a referendum on equal marriage in 2015. The Red C poll for Paddy Power found that 18% opposed the proposal with 6.5% were undecided. A random sample of 1,004 adults were interviewed by telephone between 4-6 November for the survey. Supporters of the centre-right conservative party Fianna Fáil are most likely to oppose same-sex marriage with 29% saying they will not back it.

In Dublin, support has reached an astonishing 83%.
