In the Republic, Irish-speakers have generally stayed out of politics, apart from ensuring funding and legal protection for the language. Tomorrow's marriage equality referendum, however, has seen Gaeilgeoirí actively campaigning on social media, using the Tá Comhionannas label to spread the message. All will be revealed on Saturday, but they can take inspiration from the world's most famous Offaly native and his motto of "Is féidir linn"!

Ní thaithneann an focal "Comhionnas" liom mar aistriú ar "Equality", cuma matamataice atá air dar liom, "X = Y" nó rud éigint mar sin.

Marriage equality (as coming in Denmark with registered partnership in 1989) was a very hot topic with my quite religious in-laws. I couldn't help but wonder even then, that there seemed to be less stigma to a man killing another in the name of God, than to a religious man loving another man.

Times have changed, it seems from the preliminary view on the vote.
