        It’s a great idea, and I appreciate it, but I have to agree with Paps. Nobody should be getting thanked for this. I appreciate that those of the LGBTQ community may feel that this was done solely for their benefit, but talking as a straight person, the fact that Ireland is now a more equal society is better for everyone. I don’t want to be part of a bigoted society that has some people shunned to the periphery. I want everyone to feel a part of the country, no matter their race, sex, or sexual preference, and that’s entirely selfish and I don’t need the thanks of anyone for it (although, again, I do appreciate it).

    I found the Nazi salute at 04.11 disappointing. Insidious influence of the British royals, I suppose.

      From what I encountered, the emotion and appreciation of the gay community in Ireland was heartfelt and genuine. And I’ll take this in the same spirit.

    I really liked the video. Nice idea and a lovely video diary of Dublin on a motorbike too. Missing Dublin from abroad! :’-)

    I didn’t vote with the expectation of a “thank you” from anyone, but this is genuinely humbling.
