Warfield holds Oireachtas briefing with Love Equality NI

17 April, 2019 - by Fintan Warfield


Sinn Féin spokesperson for LGBTQI Rights Senator Fintan Warfield today is holding a briefing in Leinster House with Love Equality NI – the campaign for civil marriage equality in the North. The briefing is being held for politicians and staff from all parties and none to receive an update on the campaign and how they can support it as a TD or Senator.

The briefing is co-sponsored by Senators David Norris and Jerry Buttimer.

Senator Warfield said:

“I am delighted to invite Love Equality NI to the Oireachtas and look forward to the event.

“Civil marriage equality is about protecting our families, neighbours, and friends. It is about two people making a commitment to share in the ups and downs of life. It is also about ensuring that the state recognises all of our relationships equally.

“These are rights enjoyed by Irish and British citizens in all other jurisdictions. It is an injustice that we continue to see efforts toward equality being blocked in the north.

“I hope to see a broad representation from all parties and none and that the Oireachtas plays its role in ensuring all island civil marriage equality.”
