Wexford votes YES on Marriage Referendum.

Early results from today’s count suggests that Wexford has voted YES on the 2015 Marriage Referendum.

Tallies from rural areas of Wexford have put the YES vote ahead at 2:1 (66%), with both rural Gorey and Ferns coming in at approx. 65% in favour. Meanwhile, early indications suggest that urban Gorey has voted 70%+ YES.

Early results from Enniscorthy and Oylegate have also pointed towards a 66% vote for the YES side, with rural New Ross and Campile running a little closer at approx. 60%.

Results in urban areas are expected to strengthen the YES vote in County Wexford even further, with some predictions placing the final result at 3:1.

While speaking to The Independent, Fianna Fail Cllr. Malcolm Byrne said that the YES vote will achieve a “landslide victory” in County Wexford, while Labour TD Brendan Howlin has said that the early results in rural Wexford were “fantastic”.

Meanwhile, there was a sense of amusement on Facebook and Twitter after news emerged that the vote count in NO campaigner Senator Jim Walsh’s area of New Ross was 74% YES.
