IT’S BEEN ALMOST a month since Ireland voted a huge Yes to marriage equality – and today, the first post-referendum gay engagement notice was published in the Irish Times.

Sunday Times news editor Colin Coyle tweeted a picture of the notice this morning:

It is with delight that Charles and Kate O’Shaughnessy of Foxrock, announce the engagement of their eldest son Leo to Mark, the youngest son of Yvonne and the late Clem Kinsella of Blanchardstown village.

Social Editor David Cochrane said that while it isn’t the first gay engagement notice the Irish Times has carried, it is the first since May 22:

The grooms are obviously delighted, record or no.

Congratulations Leo and Mark!
