"Campaign seeks TD support to challenge Northern Ireland same-sex marriage ban"

"Campaigners for Love Equality NI spoke to Irish parliamentarians about the inequality."



"The ongoing denial of marriage equality to people in Northern Ireland is an “embarrassing stain” on the UK’s LGBT rights record and cannot be allowed to continue, it has been claimed."

"Love Equality NI campaigners briefed members of the Irish parliament on Wednesday about the fight for marriage equality in the region."

Gunned down by the British Soldiers,
For no other reason then their religion,were murdered.

Neither the Catholic Church nor any other church or religion governs either Britain or Northern Ireland, both of which are secular and democratically governed political societies,... although granted, some aspects and applications of that democratic process are currently rather tenuous in practice in both countries,... and the Republic of Ireland seems to be more politically and socially advanced in that regard.
