    doomed to failure. Nobody read the booklet, I certainly did not and the No vote was higher because of SC ruling.

    They are challenging on the premise that government funding may have changed the vote. Yes it did, to their advantage...

    Don't be so sure. The SC judgement will count for something.

    'Well, this is another fine mess you've got us into . . .' as Oliver used to say.
    Abortion is an act of violence. Violence demeans humanity, particularly violence against women and children.

    I think most people will agree that we needed the referendum. We got it. We voted. But the problem is that the Government broke the rules in it campaign. For this they need a slap on the wrist. If this challenge brings that about and at the same time ensures that any future government does not break the rules, fair dues I say. But the result will probably stand. And FF SF will beat the government with this particular stick each and every time they have a referendum.
    Stand there in silence, look up to the sky and remember how brave they were.

    I suspect Eoin might be a member of the judiciary, he always seemed to know a huge amount about their supposed interest in viticulture
