Celebrities Say Yes To Love

Celebrities and well known Irish figures share why marriage equality matters to them.

George Hook

“For me, marriage is a commitment between two people.  It is a promise that they will look after, protect and love one another for the rest of their lives.  It is nothing to do with race, religion or sexuality.  Marriage is a public declaration of love.  It's a celebration of beauty, companionship and devotion, and it should be available to all who choose to celebrate its sanctity.”

"At its core it must be remembered that the Marriage Equality movement is about the importance of living in a world where all humans are considered equal. We are all different, so let's treat each other the same."

"I would like the choice and the right to civil marriage if I want to do that... I believe that the Irish people as a whole agree that everybody should have the same rights. It's as simple as that."

I believe this is an extremely important cause to support. All Irish people should be treated as equal, and all Irish families and children should be given equal rights. Families, human relationships and the interactions of the individual with the environment around them is central to much of my work, so it seems fitting that I should give a piece to a cause that works to improve and stabilise the Irish legal environment for the families of gay and lesbian people in Ireland.

When my husband and I got married we had to travel to Canada to do it. I didn't believe that civil partnership was an option because Eamon asked me to marry him, he didn't ask me to civil partner him! When I said I wanted to be with him for the rest of my life, I didn't mean as a legally recognised, cohabiting, same sex, civil partner... I meant as his husband. That's why my husband and I, our family and friends support Marriage Equality and the team who work so tirelessly to achieve it.

"If people are in love, and are truly in love then they should be able to get married. I don't really see any other way."
