Same-sex marriage referendum: Support for Yes vote falls

A new poll shows support for a Yes vote in the same-sex marriage referendum has fallen.

The Ipsos MRBI poll in today's Irish Times shows that Yes is down six points to 74%, with the No side up by the same margin to 26%.

It is the first time support for extending marriage rights has fallen since the question was first asked in polls in 2012.
