It's hard to believe that it's been five years since the Marriage Referendum took place and joyous scenes washed over the country.

Ireland's Marriage Referendum took place on Friday, May 22 2015 and the result the next day saw thousands of people take to the streets in celebration of victory for the 'Yes' side.

Five years later, the weekend is remembered as one of the most iconic in Ireland's recent history and to mark the anniversary, people have been sharing their memories online...


A day that Ireland will never forget and one that was literally life-changing for so many. Anyone for repeating the scenes below once the city reopens properly?
