Lisburn City Council facing legal action on access to Cherry Room

The decision by Lisburn District Council to deny the use of the Cherry Room to same-sex [civil] marriage ceremonies, a motion proposed by Alliance Party Councillor Seamus Close, and initially passed by the Council, caused discord among councillors when the issue gathered media coverage. It has also prompted a protest at Wednesday’s council meeting by the Gay Rights Association and they may take the council to court to challenge the decision.
