My Weekend (Irish) Crush

By the time you read this (given time zones and such) Ireland may have – hopefully – voted for marriage equality. The country could soon become the very first on the entire planet to grant same-sex couples the right to marry via popular vote. And, as much as I think civil rights should not be selected via a court of popular opinion, I feel confident that we have progressed to a point that the hearts and ballots of the majority of people will do the right thing. So in honor of this auspicious moment in history, let us celebrate the best way possible. With 10 lovely Irish lasses. Happy weekend, all. Fingers crossed, Ireland.

Katie McGrath

I’ve kinda missed her. Where’d she go? Oh, she’s in “Jurassic World?” Cool, cool.

Caitriona Balfe

You’re watching “Outlander,” right? Good, as long as that’s sorted.

Nora-Jane Noone

Hey, I remember her from “The Magdalene Sisters.”

Charlie Murphy

I still haven’t watched “Happy Valley,” but now I feel extra bad about all my procrastinating.

Ruth Negga

Is she still on “Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D?” I stopped watching last season. Shush, I know it got better.

Maria Doyle Kennedy

Granted she gave up Helena. But I’d still want Mrs. S, and her shotgun, to have my back.

Saoirse Ronan

“Hanna” was pretty fucking nuts. Just an observation.

Kelly Gough

I sincerely hope PC Hagstrom will be back for “The Fall” season 3.

Fiona Shaw

Sure, she was Mrs. Dursley. But, damn, she also got Saffron Burrows. So, no shame in that game.

Evanna Lynch

Look, if The Internet can go insane about Neville Longbottom, we can at very least give our respectful appreciation to Luna Lovegood.

p.s. Well done, Ireland. Well done, indeed.

Thanks for the post Dorothy! It's such an exciting and nerve-wracking day here in Ireland. It's been a moving and (mostly positive) road to this momentus vote and I only hope we do ourselves proud!

Ruth Negga is still on Agents of Shield though you would not recognize her. She has mutated into a human porcupine.

Yes, the show got better and it got renewed for a 3rd season. It's worth watching.

its a YEEEEEES !!!!
For some reason I was confident in this vote !
Irish people are simple and amazing people.
By simple I mean they don't want much,they don't go crazy on the dreams about houseS,carS etc. Most of them enjoy comfortable lives and those are actually the people who voted YES !!! Regular irish folks who only care to be fair.
The No arguments were as ridiculous as it gets,but the YES voters would say mostly one thing : its only fair.
For a catholic country who was ruled by the church not so long ago and where to be gay was illegal,just 20 years ago, sure they made a history yesterday !
So proud to be living here !
