Subject: [bullyonline] More on the "goings on" of the SuperBullies

"Another fine mess you've gotten me into Stanley"?

Hello Everyone,

This time there are two separate postings.

A busy day, but I feel I must try to "make hay while the sun shines".

Otherwise, it may well be permanent "forced exile" for me, and I have already had over two years (in total) of that to date.

For anyone interested, please see below.

Best wishes to all,



Article 29. 5. 1° of BUNREACHT NA hÉIREANN
by W. Finnerty. Tue Aug 01, 2006 17:30

As far as I know, and I trust someone will correct me if I am wrong, the arrangement between the Republic of Ireland Government and the United States Government regarding the use of Shannon Airport for U.S. military purposes constitutes an "international agreement" under Republic of Ireland law.

Why then has this international agreement never been "laid before Dail Eireann (the Republic of Ireland Parliament"? - as is required under Article 29. 5. 1° of BUNREACHT NA hÉIREANN (The Basic Law of the Republic of Ireland). The full text of this core legal document can be viewed via the following page:

Where, I wonder, do Prime Minister Ahern T.D., and his political and legal associates in and around Dáil Éireann, think they get the authority from to blatantly violate BUNREACHT NA hÉIREANN (The Constitution of the Republic of Ireland) regarding this particular matter?

Why does the Government of the United States tacitly approve and encourage such outrageous behaviour?

Last but not least, where is our so called "Guardian of the Constitution" - President Mary McAleese?

If, as seems to me to be the case, those referred to above really are all colluding to violate the Constitution of Ireland in such a major way, do they not fully qualify for the kind of description 80's tennis ace John McEnroe might use: "A disgrace to humanity"?

I was aware of the High Court challenge involving Mr Horan, though I have never studied it properly. Thank you for the web site address containing all the information in question.

Leaving aside the High Court business involving Mr Horan, extremely important though it is, the matter I have raised relates to the Article 29. 5. 1° Constitutional issue of international agreements being "laid before Dáil Éireann (the Republic of Ireland Parliament)": for the specific purpose of debate and approval - or NOT - by Parliament (i.e. Dáil Éireann).

As things stand, and I realise I might be wrong, I have no reason to believe the Article 29. 5. 1° condition has ever been met as far as the "war plane" Shannon Airport agreement with the United States is concerned. Does anyone know of any records of significant Dáil Éireann debates on this subject?

It may also be worth my mentioning that in regard to a different, but possibly even more important "international agreement", namely the United Nations Aarhus Convention Agreement, it is definitely the case (to the very best of my knowledge) that it has not been "laid before Dáil Éireann": even though the Republic of Ireland signed this particular agreement in 1998.

As some will already know, the Aarhus Convention Agreement has truly MASSIVE implications for every man, woman, and child in the Republic of Ireland: and VERY benign ones at that. Unfortunately, and thanks very largely to the "traditional" media, there are still a lot of people I suspect who do not know a single thing about the Aarhus Convention Agreement - which is like "holy water to the devil" apparently, as far as the entire population of Dáil Éireann and Washington D.C. is concerned.
