From the IT, which vigourously stirred the pot in the first place.
Constitutional experts back President Higgins over John Bruton
Experts conclude that President did not need to consult Government over Armagh event
about 3 hours ago Updated: 18 minutes ago



President Michael D Higgins was within his rights to refuse an invitation to attend a commemoration event in Armagh, constitutional experts have said.

Former Taoiseach John Bruton alleged that President Higgins was in breach of Article 13:9 of the Constitution which states that “the powers and functions conferred on the President by this Constitution shall be exercisable and performable by him only on the advice of the Government”.

Minister for Foreign Affairs Simon Coveney confirmed that while officials had discussed the invitation during routine meetings, President Higgins did not seek its advice the Government’s advice before making the decision not to attend the event in Armagh on October 21st, which Queen Elizabeth II has been invited to attend, nor was any issued to him.

Mr Bruton suggested that the President’s decision not to go an event of this nature “runs against the Good Friday Agreement”.

However, the suggestion has been denied by President Michael D Higgins who accused Mr Bruton of being wrong in his interpretation of the Constitution”.

“I’m the President of Ireland, that’s the constitutional position, the legal position,” he said and called on the former taoiseach to withdraw his remarks.

Waterford Institute of Technology law lecturer Dr Jennifer Kavanagh said a president is constrained by what he or she can say in a message to the State under the constitution or a joint address to the Houses of the Oireachtas.


A president is also constrained in his or her ability to leave the State and the Government can say no to that. This happened on one occasion when then taoiseach Charles Haughey prevented president Mary Robinson from leaving the State to deliver the Dimbleby lecture for the BBC in April 1990.

Other than that the President has discretion as to what he can or cannot do or say.

‘Element of discretion’
“The President is asked to go to so many things and he can’t go to everything. There has to be an element of discretion allowed on the diary. He wouldn’t be under Government or Council of State control on that. He is perfectly entitled to say no ‘I am not going’,” she explained.

“It is laid out pretty clearly in the constitution what the President has to contact the Government about. This is not one of those situations.”

Professor in law at Trinity College Dublin Oran Doyle said Mr Bruton’s analysis of the constitutional position of the President is incorrect.

The president has to consult the government on appointing judges to the Supreme Court and recognising ambassadors.

“The president also has developed an informal role of participating in civil society and speaking about things,” he explained.

“It has been excepted that the President doesn’t need the permission of the Government in relation to that. He does need the permission of the Government to leave the State, but he doesn’t need the permission of the Government not to leave the State.

“How workable would it be if the President needed permission not to do things? He has made a judgment call as to whether or not he should go. We have elected him as President and he has made his call on that.”

NUI Galway Professor of Law Donncha O’Connell said Mr Bruton was “clearly wrong” in his interpretation of the constitution.

“His literalist hot take on Article 13 would appear to suggest that the President is some kind of puppet whose strings are pulled by Government. This is patently nonsensical and not even remotely connected to contemporary constitutional reality,” he said.

UCC Professor of Law Conor O’Mahony tweeted that he found it “tiresome that every minor controversy about something the President did or said is portrayed as some kind of constitutional issue.


“That’s very rarely the case in reality. Disagree with the president’s stance if you will, but please leave the Constitution out of it.”

A group of undecided and some foreign nationals

There is no point in trying to court the 1st group has they have only disdain for us. 2nd group in the bag and it's the 3rd group we have to convince in a border poll.

Mkchael D's actions won't bother that group. Practical issues such as Health, jobs and benefits will convince them.

It’s the fact that he did and then lied about why is what people have the issue with

I listened to Alex Kane on a very good podcast with Andrea Catherwood. I'm just repeating what they say.

If the guards locked up the entire congregation and threw away the key, crime in Leinster would have probably collapsed.

It was not an event to to remember the partition. It was a political event to cement it for another 100 years.

What the hell is the Church of Ireland getting involved in partition about. There is no partition in the Church of Ireland, Similarly there is no partitition in the Presbyterian church, the Methodist church or the Catholic church.

Church's preach unity, (at least within themselves), not partitition.

When the Q cops on, she will abstain.

I've just copped it.
It's an event where you wear your soccer jersey, Norn Ireland or Republic.
Mickie D copped they make neither in his size.

Culchies, there's no keeping up with them !
Just don't get Garth Brooks. Hate country music
Are you not from westmeath?
Yes your point.

Country music is mainly popular in the west and north .
Ah, no - the midlands reign supreme for country shite.
The country supreme for country music, you've cracked the code.

Also Garth Brooks is the only country music I would listen to :lol:

"A significant decrease in burglaries in most Leinster counties is being attributed by senior gardaí to the deaths of three prolific criminals, as well as a number of arrest operations.

The deaths of Tallaght criminals Graham Taylor (31), Karl Freeman (26) and Dean Maguire (29) made international headlines after the car they were travelling in collided head-on with a lorry as it drove the wrong way down the N7 near Rathcoole on the night of July 7.
"

Worlds a better place of the week
Quite incredible
Wouldn't it be 'awful' if a few more guys like these should have 'accidents' in the near future?
The video of their funeral was a sight to behold. Complete glorification of the gangster lifestyle, just a dead end path to jail or death, what a way to live your life.
If the guards locked up the entire congregation and threw away the key, crime in Leinster would have probably collapsed.
The funeral was like a satire of Love Hate. Literally not one ounce of shame

So, Higgins told the organisers back in March about his problems with the name of the event.


They did nothing about it, and so he's not attending.

The Unionist reaction ?

Yep, I agree.

I don't think you have any idea how trying to politicise the office of the President of Ireland plays down here.

Higgins may have been handed the presidency by the media, but he's dead right on this. No real need to be celebrating the partition of the island anyway, but especially not the horrible little statelet that emerged up there

And what do you think about Mary McAleese hosting and attending ceremonies on the Battle of the Boyne?

Are all the lads here putting forward faux outrage on partition because you’ve all deluded yourselves that your grandad fought the Black and Tans, when in reality he was far more likely in the British Army or RIC?

Yeah I read your previous childish posts on the RIC. Your grandad likely did sweet fudge all, as statistically far more Irish were in those forces than the IRA. We all like to focus on that one part of the family tree that comforts us though.

Dimwits like you helped fuel the rise of SF. And given your support for the economic shutdown and magic money tree of the last 18 months, you may as well line up with the scumbags voting SF No. 1.

There is nothing controversial about this ceremony. It is a cross Religious service to mark a reality on this island, that is partition. Something I thought the Irish state grew up a bit on 20 odd years ago by recognising it. You can have your opinions on it one way or the other, and MDH would have been more than entitled to share them and indeed to reflect the aspiration of Article 3 of the Irish constitution for an end to partition. Mary McAleese did things right, and her speech above on the Battle of the Boyne was Presidential and recognised a reality on this island.

Did you have an issue with Mary McAleese marking the Battle of the Boyne? Yes or no?
