Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Time for marriage equality across the island

21 May, 2016 - by Mary Lou McDonald TD


Speaking on the first anniversary of the same sex marriage referendum Sinn Féin Deputy Leader Mary Lou McDonald has said it is time for marriage equality in the North.

Deputy McDonald said;

“It’s hard to believe its been a year since that magnificent day when we amended our constitution to recognise the rights of our brothers and sisters.

“We can be proud that Ireland has led the way on this issue.

“However we still do not have full marriage equality across island and it is time to support our gay brothers and sisters across the north.

“The first act of Sinn Féin’s new assembly team in Stormont was to bring forward legislation to extend marriage equality across the North and we will continue to push this issue until such time as it become a reality.”
