To look at polling, at commentary on social media and even at the mainstream media, it feels very much like the outcome of the Marriage Equality Referendum is a foregone conclusion.
But despite the Yes campaign’s dominance to date, there’s been no shortage of reminders that the No side won’t give up without a fight – and that every vote will count when the polls open on May 22, particularly in areas outside of the capital.
The latest example is this note received by Country Choice, a café, deli and food shop in Nenagh, Co Tipperary – a pretty shocking threat in response to the seemingly innocuous act of putting up a Yes poster.

The note has received widespread condemnation online – but at times like these it’s important to remember that votes, not tweets, determine the outcome of elections.
