Broadcast media has the bullshit "balance" obligation from the BAI but newspapers here have no obligation to be balanced.

They don't doubt the obvious shift in social mores; they question the wisdom of it.

RTÉ report

22.23 The voting period for the referendums on same-sex marriage and presidential-age has ended with polling stations reporting an "unusually high" electorate turnout.

Will be interesting to see if there really was a silent no majority out there as claimed by some.

Looks like a few silent no's out there

There appears to be a rural/urban divide with the results and a clear YES in urban areas but small pockets of NO votes in some rural places.
I'm guessing it's an age thing.

Not even going to be close, looks like there was a strong silent yes to go with the noisy yes.

Looks like a strong urban and rural YES.

The chatholic church is becoming so out of touch with the populace and or it is becoming largely irrelavent for most people.

This can only be a good thing. :D

Well done Ireland

Very strong vote for marriage. Unusual in modern societies.
