Greater rights for gay couples in Ireland

Taoiseach Bertie Ahern has declared his support for moves to provide equal rights for gay couples in Ireland on tax and inheritance issues – “These people who are in relationships which are not illegal, they’re not immoral, they’re not improper. They say: ‘We want more equality and we want to be treated fairer.’ I agree with that.” The RTE report also has Realmedia links to news reports on the Taoiseach’s comments.

You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here.
