Gay Couple And Pub?s Owners Settle Dispute

The bar in Ireland accused of asking a gay couple to leave after they kissed has issued a joint statement with the couple claiming that mistakes were made by all involved.

The Irish Examiner has the story:

A gay couple allegedly ejected from a Cork pub for kissing on the dance floor have met the pub?s owners, with both parties conceding “mistakes” were made by all involved.

A war of words and threats of legal action were last night put to bed when the two warring parties met, and after “deliberations and discussions” resolved the issue and came to an amicable agreement.

The owner of the Old Oak pub apologised for any offence, but stressed that none was intended, as the Old Oak is not and never has been an anti-gay establishment.

Equally, the couple involved, who wished to remain anonymous, accepted they could have handled matters in a better way.

The row began when the popular Cork pub was accused of asking a gay couple to leave the premises after they kissed on its dance floor in the early hours of last Saturday morning.
