A NEW POLL published in The Sunday Times today shows that over 85% of people accept gay and lesbian marriage as morally right.

The poll also found that 65% said they agreed that gay adoption was acceptable.

The Behaviours and Attitudes poll surveyed 954 people.


Welcoming the poll results, Kieran Rose from Gay and Lesbian Equality Network (GLEN) said that results was another demonstration  of the transformation in attitudes to lesbian and gay people.

“It is clear from this poll and other recent polls public opinion firmly accepts that lesbian and gay people and families headed by lesbian and gay couples should be afforded the same respect, legal status and protections that are available to the rest of society,” said Rose.

He said that the growing political and public support shows that Ireland is “ready for the next step in the 20 year journey to civil marriage and full Constitutional equality for lesbian and gay people and families”.
