‘’That this council shows solidarity with the LGBT Community in Poland and opposes the manner and way that Poland’s government is treating its LGBT Community by Banning Gay Marriage , Creating LGBT Free zones , locking up LGBT activists etc , We are proud that In Ireland we have come such a long way and We affirm that We are a country that promotes and advocate equality for everyone, We send solidarity to all our Polish LGBT Brothers and Sisters! We commit to write to the Polish Ambassador and our Minister for Foreign Affairs to express our Solidarity to the polish LGBT community.’’

Cllr Timmons says ‘’the motion that was agreed at September council meeting affirms the huge progress we have made on equality in Ireland but calls on the Minister for Foreign affairs to act in regards to the awful manner our polish LGBT brothers and sisters are being treated in there homeland in Poland , we cannot sit back and ignore when there is inequality we need to stand up for the human rights of others, The Polish governments treatment of its LGBT Community by Banning Gay Marriage , Creating LGBT Free zones , locking up LGBT activists etc is totally unacceptable , there is no room for such discrimination in a modern world , everyone is equal and I ask that as a council we stand in solidarity with the polish LGBT community and as a country we condemn this treatment of fellow human beings’‘
