In May 2015, Ronan backed the Yes side in the Marriage Equality Referendum regarding an amendment to the constitution of Ireland to mandate provision for same-sex marriage. Speaking at a "Get out the vote" event organised by Yes Equality, Ronan said "It’s like when black and white people couldn’t marry, Protestants and Catholics couldn’t marry for a long time, and you think of it as being so ridiculous now... these are all things that we consider to be so backwards and dated, and it will be viewed as that if we get a No vote."
