Rural Ireland wary of same-sex marriage vote

Anti same-sex marriage posters in Knock, west Ireland, photographed on May 18, 2015In the village of Knock in the west of Ireland, support for a “No” vote in Friday’s same-sex marriage referendum is strong, as it is in many rural areas where the Catholic Church still holds sway. Lying about 200 kilometres (124 miles) west of Dublin, Knock is in Prime Minister Enda Kenny’s constituency but many people here could not hold more different views from their country’s leader. Debate on the referendum was initially slow to get going in Ireland, with all the main political parties supporting a “Yes” vote to legalise gay marriage.
