Irish politicians support ‘St Pat’s For All’

By staff reporter

A video uploaded to YouTube at the end of last month features a message of support in inclusion to the ‘St Pat’s For All’ group in New York.

It features contributions from a series of Irish politicians: John Halligan TD (Independent), Senator Averil Power (Fianna Fáil), Senator Ivana Bacik (The Labour Party) and Jerry Buttimer TD (Fine Gael).

New York Mayor De Blasio announced recently that he would not be taking part in the main St Patrick’s Day Parade as it would not allow gay and lesbian groups march with their own banners.
