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.
