'I Do!': The Long Journey to Marriage Is Over

22 October 2015

The Seanad this afternoon is expected to complete all stages of the Marriage Bill (2015), which gives effect to the Marriage Equality Referendum. "Today is a magical day for the people of Ireland and especially for our lesbian and gay citizens. It is one of the most important days in the journey to equality for lesbian and gay people" said Kieran Rose, GLEN Co.Chair

"Finally, every barrier to full constitutional equality will be cleared. There now just remains a matter of weeks before lesbian and gay couples can make the most profound of loving commitments to each other and say ‘I do' on the same basis as everyone else" said Rose.
