5 Sep 2013


Congratulations to Senator Katherine Zappone who was conferred with an honorary doctorate in laws from UCD, in recognition of her public service and work for social justice, including with Marriage Equality.

Marriage Equality's 2008 launch grew from the KAL Advocacy Initiative, a case to recognise the Canadian marriage of two Irish citizens - Senator Katherine Zappone and Dr Ann Louise Gilligan. Click here to find out more about Katherine and Ann Louise, and their ongoing legal challenge.
