Pink News reports:
Dublin MEP Emer Costello has called for Ireland’s equal marriage referendum to be held on the same day as European and local elections in 2014 – rather than the planned date of 2015. The Irish Labour Party politician believes it will help boost turnout and safeguard a yes vote in favour of civil marriage rights for Ireland’s same-sex couples. Ireland’s cabinet this week formally agreed to hold a referendum on equal marriage in 2015.
Same sex couples in Ireland shouldn’t have to wait two more years.
