Marriages on hold following cyberattack

 

A chara, – Last week, five brides-to-be protested vigorously at Leinster House to protect the wedding industry’s bottom line. They failed to note that young couples currently cannot even register to marry. Following the cyberattack on the HSE on May 14th, the Dublin Civil Registration Service has had no access to its marriage appointments or registry office booking system. This is a real issue with legal consequences. The five-bride protest missed the forest for the trees. – Is mise,
