Constitutional issues

Eilis Barry, Legal Adviser from the Equality Authority speaks, much of the ground she was to cover has been spoken about already by the Minister and the CEO of the Equality Authority.

She does cover the UK and the impact of the Good Friday Agreement.

Most of the crowd are reading their delegate packs. Where I have received yet another copy of the EA report on Implementing Equality for Lesbians, Gays and Bisexuals…

Eilis is not as pessimistic about the exclusionary nature of the Irish Constitution – marriage is not defined in the constitution…how many times do we need to hear this before the Minister ‘hears’ it.

Eilis and many others await the ruling in the Zappone/Gilligan case for further clarification…
