The ecstatic Twitter reaction to the confirmation of a 'Yes' vote in the Marriage Referendum

Ireland, you're just one big pack of rides.

It was inevitable from a long way off but now we know for sure: Article 41 of the Constitution has now been amended to include the line: “Marriage may be contracted in accordance with law by two persons without distinction as to their sex.”

The yes vote passed with 62.41% support in what was the highest turnout for any referendum in the history of the state; only one of the 43 constituencies in the country (Roscommon/South Leitrim) supported a 'No' vote.

On such a historic day, we expected a massive reaction but to be honest about it, what has transpired has exceeded the wildest of expectations.

Not surprisingly, Twitter nearly exploded.
