My best to you both in your quest for equality in the eyes of the State and of your fellow citizens.

I congratulate Katherine and Ann Louise on 30 years of love and commitment and wish them many more; as a married couple. I congratulate them for sharing their unselfish and inspiring journey as they fight for equality. I also want to send a clear and indignant message to the Irish Government that Civil Partnership Act is not enough: we must have marriage equality. Love and best wishes. Ailish Whyte

Thank you for being so brave and courageous! I am very disappointed that is taking so much of your time, energy and finances to gain the recognition of your loving marriage and with slow success. It is very sad that a country full of such bright and hopeful people seems to be dominated by such fearful decision makers. The glow from your inspiration and aspirations is like a torch that I hope will keep burning. Best wishes,lots of love and many thanks, Rachel <3

Just an ordinary couple

Hi Katherine & Ann Louise,

My partner Helena and I have been together since 1982 and became Civil Partners on the 29th July this year. We eagerly await news of full marriage status - an equality we feel should be our civil right. Many thanks for taking this to the Supreme Court.

Kindest regards,

Bernie & Helena
