Sinn Féin MLA Chris Hazzard has congratulated Caitriona Ruane for being selected as Politician of the Year at the Pride Awards on Friday night. Speaking to Newry Times, Hazzard said, “I would like to congratulate my colleague Caitriona Ruane for winning the award as Pride Politician of the Year as there is no one more deserving. “Caitriona has fought hard for equality for everyone and has been particularly strong on the issue of marriage equality that effects the gay community. “It is important that we all support equality in all aspects of life for every citizen and Caitriona has been exemplary throughout her career, not only as a politician in standing up for the rights of minorities. “I know that Caitriona will be honoured by the acknowledgement that her work has been recognised although I am certain it is not her motivation in pursuing the equality agenda. Hazzard added, “Sinn Féin will continue our campaign for marriage equality so that all couples who are married enjoy equal legal and other rights that people take for granted.”
