on 12/11/2012 20:52:30
A motion on the issue was added to the monthly agenda after the County Hall opened as a venue for civil marriages.
During this evening's debate, there was cross-party agreement that marriage should be extended to all citizens of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown, irrespective of sexuality.
The Council does not have the power to set a legal precedent on the issue, but they will be passing their reccommendations on to the Justice Minister, Alan Shatter.
