Actor Colin Farrell Praises Ireland’s Passage of Same-Sex Marriage: “Bravo Citizens of Ireland!”
My future husband Colin Farrell is stinging praises for Ireland for becoming the world’s first country to legalize same-sex marriage by a popular vote.
“Today Ireland has opened up her heart in a way that the whole world will feel,” Farrell said to People Magazine. “How we have changed our fortune in 24 hours, how we have lit the way, how we have guaranteed a brighter and more loving future for all who call this beautiful land home. Bravo citizens of Ireland.”
Colin, who’s brother Eamon is gay, in November, wrote a letter in the Sunday World calling for Ireland voters to support gay rights. He also took his support to television, appearing on RTÉ’s Claire Byrne Live in January to make the case for gay marriage.
He said, “I support this vote with every fiber of my being.”
