Now married and about to become parents for the second time, Zoe and Casey Evans first met when they were teenagers. They both attended the same secondary school in Waterford, where they grew up and still live. “She was two years ahead of me in school,” Zoe recalls of her wife, who had finished school by the time they became a couple. “I was in fifth year when we started seeing each other.”

She was Casey’s first girlfriend. “But she wasn’t mine,” Zoe smiles. “I actually came out when I was in first year in school. My mother is gay as well, so I grew up around a lot of gay people. When I went into secondary school, listening to all my friends, I knew straight away; ‘all these girls are mad about the lads and I just have no interest’. I came out straight away.”
