Ireland: Green & Rainbow

Ireland is a historically conservative country, never really pointed at as a shining beacon of progressiveness by...well, pretty much anyone. That is up until now. Very recently, Ireland has overwhelmingly passed a democratic vote to allow gay marriage, landing them as the first country to do so in the world. Now, while this is amazing and all, I'm sure you're wondering "Hey, this is a blog about America, what's it got to do with that?" Good question, you! See, Irish-American ties have historically been a lot stronger than most countries, at least culturally. The sheer amount of Irish Americans around have seen to that (Myself being one of them). Much as Irish traditions spread over to the US, it's my hope that this new wave of tolerance does as well.
