Good luck today, hopefully there will be positive news before the end of the year.

Hi Katherine and Ann Louise,

We are also a bi-national couple (also Seattle/Dublin!) and we have been following your story with much interest and hope for the last few years.

While we can only imagine how difficult this struggle is for you both, we just wanted to take a moment to let you know how much of an impact your bravery and tirelessness has had on us.

Please know that we love and support you, and are cheering for you on both sides of the Atlantic!

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
