That's only because Mrs Brown got on TV and done a whole skit about it. People here are massivly backward and without Brendan O'Connor doing that among others the vote would have been very different. Don't think Ireland is some progressive country because it certainly is not, although I'm wondering if it's time for Ming Flannagan to get a referendum on legalizing medical cocain ...er...cannabis.
I'd have to disagree with just about everything you say here. Your comment says more about the people you associate yourself with in Ireland than anything else.
