Men walk past a Yes vote campaign graffiti in central Dublin as Ireland holds a referendum on gay marriageBy Padraic Halpin and Conor Humphries DUBLIN (Reuters) - Irish voters turned out in droves to cast ballots in a gay marriage referendum on Friday, with the high turnout likely to favour the Yes side seeking equality just two decades after the country decriminalised homosexuality. With the once mighty Catholic Church's influence ravaged by child abuse scandals, opinion polls indicated the proposal would pass by as much as two-to-one, making Ireland the first country to adopt same-sex marriage via a popular vote. Irish national broadcaster RTE said it appeared to have been one of the highest ever turnouts for a referendum in the country, with turnout likely to reach 60 percent in Dublin.
