    Very interesting. The Courts, however, are generally disinclined to intervene in Oireachtas procedures.

To such ones the modern world is nothing but betrayal and ruin.........We feel bound to disagree with these prophets of doom who are forever forecasting calamity -- as though the world's end were imminent."

    Michael O'’Higgins is a pretty eminent barrister, who won't come cheap

    I'd be curious if a judge grants his right to challenge... as judges aren't too fond of going near the Orieachtas

    Also I'd expect the High Court to do a divisional sitting on this for the substantive hearing.... and wonder might they even do one tomorrow

    Lastly I hope he is let challenge, and that it fails.... and he appeals.... and it fails, and the Supreme Court order costs against him

    Sure next we will get a taoiseach going to court trying to stop a tribunal he established. Oh, sorry, that already happened.
