The Associated Press reports:
One of the first gay couples in Ireland to officially tie the knot under new laws have hailed their wedding as an emotional milestone.
Barry Dignam and Hugh Walsh said their simple civil partnership ceremony at a register office in Dublin signalled how far the country has come on in recent years.
Both have already set their sights on full marriage, allowing the same rights and protections afforded to heterosexual partners, as the next landmark in a struggle for equality.
