Browne was presenting a special TV3 programme from The George throughout the day when the official declaration was made.

After confirmation that some 1.2m voters had backed the constitutional reform, the programme cut back to the venue where celebrations were underway.

Vincent attempted to talk, but almost immediately gave into the crowd with the cameras panning the venue and capturing the happy atmosphere.

Browne's voice appeared to waiver as he declared himself happy in the venue for TV3's coverage of the referendum.

"Gay Ireland had to hide away so long and felt abandoned, alone, sad, miserable and degraded," he said.

"But today... just look at the crowd here. Isn't it just wonderful? I'm proud to be here.

 
 

"It's just fantastic," he added.

He thanked the crowd, and the dancers who performed musical numbers throughout the show.

The crowd then burst into a spontaneous chorus Ole, Ole, Ole and a laughing Vincent joined in as the show came to an end.

Vincent was joined by a number of guests throughout the programme including Senator Averil Power, Fianna Fail leader Micheal Martin and Sinn Fein Deputy Leader Mary Lou McDonald.
