The Claddagh Embrace mural, by Irish artist Joe Caslin, depicts two men in an emotional embrace and was installed in recent weeks.

A similar mural by Caslin has also been installed on the side of a castle in the west of Ireland.

The mural, which has been splashed across the front pages of Irish newspapers, has now gone international.

Artist Caslin posted a photo of the newspaper on his Instagram account and wrote: "Today the drawing that was installed on South Great George's Street made the front page of the International New York Times".

The headline of the article reads 'Gay Marriage on Ballot Shows Shift in Irish Attitudes' and reports: 'Unlike the vitriolic fights here in the past over abortion and divorce, the referendum is stirring about as much excitement as might surface during a local council election'.

Today is the final full day of campaigning before the broadcasting moratorium takes effect.
