Ireland passes same-sex marriage - level 2
In Ireland, politicians campaigned to make same-sex marriage legal. It appeared that only some people would vote for the change, but the country passed the new law with most people voting for it.
One man at a voting area said that he was proud to be Irish and that today his people showed what they believe in. He said that people told many stories about this event already.
Ireland is the first country in the world to pass same-sex marriage by popular vote, which means that most of its people supported the law.
Difficult words: campaign (to try to change something through politics), appear (to seem), popular vote (when a lot of people vote for something).
