IRELAND CELEBRATES FIRST SAME-SEX WEDDINGS


Ireland has just witnessed its first same-sex weddings this week after laws came into effect following the historic marriage equality referendum held earlier this year.

After being together for 12 years, Cormac Gollogly and Richard Dowling became the first same-sex couple to tie the knot in their home country.

Richard explained to the Irish Times how he had proposed to Cormac on a beach in Spain two years ago on a September night ablaze with a fireworks and Cormac had immediately accepted his proposal and they have been planning this day ever since.
