Rachel Mathews-McKay

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

I think its wonderful what ye are both doing, your both very courageous and I wish ye both the best of luck. I really do hope so much that your marriage becomes recognised in Ireland.
