Irish nationals who arrived by ferry from Britain pose for a group picture at Dublin port in Ireland, on May 22, 2015, as they prepare to vote in a referendum on whether same-sex marriage should become legalWhile many voters in Ireland's referendum on introducing same-sex marriage were strolling around Dublin wearing "Yes" badges Friday, many "No" voters were keeping it to themselves. On the corner of plush Merrion Square, outside the childhood home of 19th-century writer Oscar Wilde, there were two placards on the nearest lamp-post, one reading "Vote Yes" and the other "Equality for everybody". At Dublin Port, around 30 Irish emigrants sailed over from Britain to vote "Yes", arriving in home-made t-shirts, cheering and waving balloons and banners.
