All the colours of the rainbow: The day Ireland made history

Ireland said yes!

IRELAND, IT’S BEEN emotional.

The sun was shining down on the people of Ireland today as our little country made history by being the first nation to vote in same-sex marriage by popular vote.

There were happy scenes from up and the down the country as people celebrated the Yes result of 62% to 38% No.

There were tears, marriage proposals and hugs all round. These round-up pics from the day will bring a tear to your eye.
