IRELAND: Ring Your Granny For Marriage

Clip recap:
On May 22nd, Ireland will vote on the Marriage Equality referendum, deciding whether or not same-sex couples can get legally married. In Ireland, and particularly here in Trinity, students and young people are the most likely to vote yes in the referendum. But we typically have the lowest voter turnout. However, it's still unclear how the older generations are going to vote. And, given that older Irish people are more likely to turn out and vote on the day, this demographic could swing the vote in a very big way. So Trinity students ran up their parents and grandparents to see what way they'd be voting in the upcoming referendum.
