Dear Katherine and Anne-Louise,

I thank you for your tireless efforts to attain recognition for your marriage in this country. You are an inspiration to not only the gay and lesbian citizens of this country but to all peoples who are treated as second class in modern Ireland. I have my fingers crossed for you both and am following the case with bated breath!
