During the referendum on gay marriage in Ireland, they were interviewing people on tv who flying back to Ireland from all over the world to vote. Surely they would not have agreed to be interviewed if they were breaking the law?
Most of them did not realize it was illegal until they got back to Ireland, went to the polling station and read the notice or more likely was stopped on the way in and advised to go home.

I still remember one genius that I challenged - he said his father had voted in every election since 1922, he had received the voting card for him and he was going to vote in this one too... his father had been dead for two months! But he thought he was entitled to on behalf of his father since he had received a voting card for him... The Garda decided he was a ‘soft idiot’ and sent him home with a warning.
