If you’ve come across this because I’ve shared it before the Irish Constitutional Referendum tomorrow. Remember it’s the white page for the Marriage Referendum. I’ll be voting YES or TÁ by placing a nice clear “X” in the box – not a tick as this might not be counted.

I’ve kept my mouth closed about the campaigning and posters for the most part (imagine that).

I’ll be making my vote count tomorrow. I hope that you will choose to vote too.
