FF delegates back equal marriage and adoption rights for same-sex couples

Delegates at the Fianna Fáil Ard Fheis in Dublin have voted in favour of giving equal marriage rights to all people regardless of race, religion. gender or sexual orientation.

They have also backed a motion calling for same-sex couples to be given full adoption rights.

Delegates backed both motions, despite the justice spokesperson Dara Calleary asking for the issue to be debated out as part of the party's planned response to the Government's constitutional convention.
