A lesbian couple, who were evicted from an Irish bar because they were kissing and hugging, won a discrimination lawsuit against the bar owner in that country. The Judge found that the conduct of the bar owner had violated section 19 of the Irish Intoxicating Liquor Act, 2003. The Equality Authority chief executive officer was quoted as saying that "The incident was traumatic for them yet they have come forward as valuable role models for the gay and lesbian community in challenging homophobia."
