Woman still awaits birth cert

Dentist Dr Lydia Foy has revealed she is still waiting for a female birth certificate a year after she won her landmark legal battle for recognition as a woman.

In a RTE Radio One documentary due to be broadcast at 2pm today, the 64-year-old tells of her lifelong struggle with transgender syndrome, which began in childhood.

Last year, her fight to be legally recognised as a woman ended when the Government dropped its challenge to the High Court declaration that Irish law on transgender rights is in breach of the European Convention on Human Rights.
