Gay Irish sperm donor wins visiting rights to lesbian couple's child
Supreme Court says lesbians are not a valid family unit
An Irish gay sperm donor has been granted access to a lesbian couple's three-year-old child.
The Irish Supreme Court ruled that the man should be allowed regular visits to his three-year-old son partly because Ireland's constitution does not recognise the lesbians as a family unit.
The ruling is a legal first in Ireland, where homosexuality was outlawed until 1993 and gay couples are denied many rights.
The man had donated sperm to the lesbian couple and it was agreed at the time that the man would be a "favourite uncle" to the child.
The ruling by the Supreme Court acknowledged the agreement but said any closer connection would be "wholly disruptive" to the child. They said the man should have visiting rights although not legal legal guardianship.
