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

To Dr Ann Louise Gilligan and Senator Katherine Zappone.
I fully support your case with the supreme Court and I am sorry that you come up against so many walls regarding it. I am in a similar suituation regarding a Canadian marriage, but my relationship with my partner has since ended due to her having an affair. I will at some stage in the near future have to go through a divorse, with no support from Irish law.
It is a discrace that so many Irish people do not have the same rights as their brothers and sisters and I wish you all the best in your fight for equal rights.
May you always find the strength and compassion to argue your case in the professional and dignified manner as you have done so far and know always that there are people out there, supporting you both all the way.
Kind regards.

Regina Divilly

Best of luck in your new challange!!
