"Ireland's new same-sex marriage law comes into force from Monday, six months after the country voted to allow gay unions in a historic referendum. Existing same-sex marriages registered abroad will be immediately recognised in Ireland, while other couples can now submit their intention to marry. ... In May, Ireland voted 62.1 percent in favour of allowing marriage between two people 'without distinction as to their sex,' the first time anywhere that gay marriage has been legalised in a referendum."
