The Irish prime minister, the Taoiseach Enda Kenny has said he will not be drawn into taking a position on whether marriage should be available to gay couples before a constitutional convention examines the issue.
Fianna Fail leader Micheal Martin had pushed the prime minister for his view after the deputy prime minister made his support for gay marriage rights public earlier this month.
Mr Gilmore is the leader of the Irish Labour Party and serves as Deputy Prime Minister in a coalition government with Mr Kenny’s Fine Gael party.
