“People have redefined what marriage means to them. Marriage is more popular than ever – which is unusual – you might think that with, perhaps, the demise, a little, of the Catholic Church and people turning towards a more secular society that that wouldn’t be so, but actually people are still looking for that commitment and we do marriage very well in Ireland!”

Pro-same sex marriage group Vote With Us offering voters a “chance to find and share reasons to vote yes in the upcoming referendum on marriage equality”.
