Here's Why You Should Skip Work To Watch 'The Story Of Yes' Today
Love is real!
Last night, The Story of Yes, a 50 minute documentary film aired on RTÉ. Within minutes the show was trending on Twitter as people reached out to share their stories, and weigh in on the seismic shift that occurred in Ireland this time last year.
If you didn't get a chance to watch the documentary you can do so here, and we fully suggest doing so immediately - just make sure you've got some tissues handy.
Here's how the people of Ireland responded to what can only be described as an emotional rollercoaster...

Its true. If you want to understand Ireland, who we really are-our decency, generosity, compassion-look at what we did last May. #StoryofYes— Colm O'Gorman (@Colmogorman) May 23, 2016
