On Friday Ireland voted on the issue of marriage equality.
A referendum was required because the country’s constitution defines marriage, and to prevent legal challenges to same-sex marriages they wanted to tweak the wording – so to change the constitution requires the say of the people.
They had weeks of debates on television and radio, not to mention on the streets – where there were also posters for both sides of the campaign.
Emotions were running high by the day of the referendum. Under the Rainbow spoke to a few people in Dublin’s LGBT community.
Devon based trio Demalebysse and Russian born singer songwriter Daria Kulesh came into the Roots & Fusion studio to record a wonderful session.
Each recording four songs, we then had a very interesting, informative and giggly chat.
We discussed the Demalebysse name, Steve’s wanderlust, how long it takes to become a Devonian and Lucy’s lost Bodhran (a situation rescued thanks to Stockport’s Fab Music Store), as well as Daria’s next project…
