Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Constitutional Referendum to further liberalize Ireland's divorce laws - to recognise foreign divorces and reduce the period of separation from 4 to 2 years - has been officially passed with 82% of the vote in favour - the highest margin of victory for any referendum since the Good Friday Agreement was passed into Ireland's Constitution.

Those in the UK, who glibly talk about amending the Good Friday Agreement, like to forget it is an international Treaty and required a popular referendum and Constitutional amendment in Ireland to bring into force. These things are not easily changed or reversed.
