This #Pride2022, we come together in the face of ongoing homophobia and transphobia. As we celebrate LGBTQ+ diversity in communities across Ireland, we honour the lives of Aidan Moffitt & Michael Snee. Let's champion love & equality for all to see 🌈🏳️‍⚧️🏳️‍🌈 @DeptCulturelRL

An appalling retrograde step for women's rights
A major blow to abortion rights. The US supreme court has overturned Roe vs. Wade, the legal decision that gives a constitutional right to an abortion the US. We will continue to fight. For #abortion rights everywhere. #RoeVsWade @terryreintke

The Birth Information and Tracing Bill has now passed all stages in the Oireachtas. This is a historic moment. The Bill provides adopted people, anyone boarded out, and anyone whose birth was illegally registered with a clear right to full access to all of their information.

I'm very sorry to hear that Dennis Cahill has passed away His unique guitar playing had a huge impact on the Irish music tradition; he has left a beautiful catalogue of music behind him. My thoughts are with his family and friends. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.

Great to welcome 5th and 6th class @EdmondstownNS students to Leinster House today 🙌 I hope they learned lots about Irish democracy and perhaps feel encouraged to get into Irish politics in the future 🇮🇪

🌈 'There is no Pride without perseverance.' As Pride marches return to our streets this year, it's a time to celebrate how far we've come, but also to remember that #PrideIsAProtest because the fight for LGBTQ+ rights continues. ✊ #Pride #PrideMonth #Pride2022 #BróduilAgusGlas
