    That trophy would never have matched the shiny-shiny glass one in the Broadsheet cabinet. Looks cheap.

        I haven’t.
        BS won an award last year and gave it to Clamp….sorry, John Gallen to mind.
        There were many glowing images of it, and jubilation in the streets and along canal-sides.
        Gallen may have sold it as there hasn’t been a photo since.

    That is Yes Equality Campaign now that won the award and not Renua candidate endorsing Yes Kilkenny Facebook page which Patrick McKee only found out about on polling day and was therefore “not in a position” to do anything about it except keep quiet about it , do nothing to take down post that endorsed him and get loads of votes from people who didn’t know the difference-

      I was just thinking that myself. I wouldn’t have known anything about it if it wasn’t for Broadsheet.
      Staying relevant guys!

  3. Just sayin'

    It’s asy to run a good social media campaign with Chuck Feeny’s millions. This isn’t a political point – I’m just saying that I’d have more admiration for the people who achieved something on a budget of next to nothing.

      OK, I’ll bite.

      Yes Equality was funded by donations from Irish individuals and Irish companies and the maximum any organisation was allowed (by law) to donate was €2,500.

      Yes Equality was a collaborative organisation made up of three separate groups (Marriage Equality, Glen, ICCL), but none of their individual funding sources were used to fund Yes Equality.
