That's brilliant, but do you think it will have any effect?

Civil partnerships are now pretty certain to be legalised in Ireland; opinion polls show a majority of the population of going all the way and legalising same-sex marriage, and I reckon this will certainly help.

I hope you are right.

That would be good... Having recently visited Montreal, I think Ireland needs the same kind of Quiet Revolution they had in Quebec to reduce church influence in just about everything. No idea how to make that happen, but this kind of ad must help!

Would've been quite interesting had they legalized same-sex marriages before legalizing divorce -)))

More to the point - how did he instantly know to use Irish with the Irish speaker?

Oh, and great advert!!

Doesn't the Irish speaker start by asking "Conas atá tu?"?

Hmmmmm...must think of a quick excuse to cover-up the degradation of my 'super-powers of observation'.

Err..

Ummm...

Ah-ha!

Well in Ulster we say "Caidé mar atá tú". That Southern stuff just flys over my head y'know.
