Poll: Majority of
Irish support rights for gay couples

Poll results released Sunday in Ireland show that a majority of that country's people support giving the same legal and financial rights to gay couples that straight couples already enjoy. The survey, sponsored by Dublin's Sunday Tribune newspaper, reveals that 64% of respondents favored extending tax, inheritance, and other benefits to those in same-sex relationships, the Irish News reports. However, the poll also found that 50% of the respondents opposed granting gay couples the right to adopt children. Although single people, gay or straight, can adopt in Ireland, no unmarried couple can. Only 37% of poll respondents supported letting gay couples adopt. The remainder said they did not know or had no opinion. (The Advocate)
