The partner of murdered Northern Irish journalist Lyra McKee has made a powerful plea to Theresa May to introduce same-sex marriage in Northern Ireland. Sara Canning insisted that she wanted to marry Lyra McKee because this is what people do when they meet someone they want to grow old with. One bullet took this dream away, but there are thousands (if not millions) of Northern Irish folks who love deeply, but their love is not valued enough just because they happen to fall in love with someone of the same sex. ““It is unbelievable, and simply unacceptable, that in 2019, this discrimination is allowed to continue in any part of the UK or Ireland. With Stormont out of action for almost the last two and a half years, we need the UK government to step in,” said Canning, adding that she already said it to Theresa May at Lyra’s funeral, but she will repeat it over and over again until the PM hears her .
