At 2pm this afternoon, all Irish radio and television broadcasters were issued with a moratorium on reporting on the issues relating to both upcoming referendums this Friday May 22nd. As this legally-binding edict happened as Sean Moncrieff was live on air, the onus fell on him to sensitively and, with all things being equal, carefully introduce the ban on any discussion of the pros and cons of same-sex marriage on the radio until after the polls close on Friday.
And here's how he did it...The good news for anyone still weighing up the issues and looking to read and listen to arguments for and against the introduction of same-sex marriage, Newstalk.com has got you covered.
On newstalk.com/MarRef, you'll find an extensive dissection of the issues actually at play here, especially in the interview with Justice Kevin Cross, the referendum commission, who answers questions posed by Newstalk listeners in relation to the vote and its outcome.
You can also read the diary kept by Dublin couple Alison McDonnell and Pauline Burke, who wrote exclusively for Newstalk about what it was like to experience a potentially live-changing campaign from the very heart of it.
Please remember to use your vote tomorrow at your local polling station between 7am and 10pm. And tune in to Newstalk on Saturday as we take in the count from around the country.
