Tipperary hurling star Kieran Bergin has revealed he will be voting NO in the upcoming Marriage Referendum.
While the GPA and the WGPA revealed they would be backing a Yes vote, Bergin has bucked the GAA trend with a quote from the Tipp man appearing on a leaflet backing a No vote.
Ciaran Lyng brought the aforementioned leaflet to the fore when he tweeted: "First 'No' leaflet I've seen. Important reminder to do everything you can for final two weeks for a Yes vote. #MarRef."
Within that tweet was a pic with a quote from Bergin saying: “I’m voting No! Marriage can only be the union of a man and a woman.”
There has been mixed reaction on social media to Bergin's stance.
