A new poll shows 76% support for same-sex marriage in Ireland, ahead of this summer’s referendum. The Red C poll was carried out by phone among 1002 people. The referendum will be held in May. It shows that 81% of women and 72% of men polled supported marriage for same-sex couples. People aged 18 – 24 were most likely to support it, with support generally declining as the age of those polled increased.
