We are the 80% says ICCL, welcoming pre-campaign equality poll

ICCL Press Release

Wednesday 14 January 2015

Ireland’s human rights watchdog, the Irish Council for Civil Liberties, has welcomed the results of today’s (Wednesday 14 January) Red C poll, which estimates pre-referendum campaign public support for civil marriage equality at a rock solid 80 per cent (excluding “don’t knows”).

Commenting on the poll, ICCL Director Mark Kelly said:

“Well before the civil marriage equality referendum campaign even begins, this latest pre-campaign poll is further evidence of the deep repository of good will amongst voters in Ireland towards full equality for same sex couples. Our job, together with partners from across civil society and all political parties, is to ensure that good will translates into a massive turnout at the ballot boxes this May, when the only poll that truly matters will occur”.
