"If this situation does not represent 'legal profession corruption' at its very worst, then I don't know what does?"  
EUROS 600,000
by W. Finnerty. Fri Aug 17, 2007 14:56

Vincent (Fri Aug 17, 2007 12:15 above), 
My recollection, and please correct me in this thread if I'm wrong, is that there was a EUROS 600,000 bill for the High Court "National Monuments (Amendment) Act 2004" case which you were involved with in the early part of 2006, and which you were unable to pay - and had not in fact ever expected to be asked to pay, I assume. 
Like yourself, and your legal team I imagine, I would have assumed that the State would have picked up the bill - in full - for such an important challenge involving constitutional law: which I, and I suspect many other people are extremely grateful to you for attempting.
However, it is my understanding that the judge involved (Mr Justice Thomas Smyth) did something unusual and unexpected: in that he saddled you personally with a VERY large bill. 
I further understand that, in exchange for having the EUROS 600,000 bill paid for on your behalf by the State, you entered into an agreement with senior members of the legal profession NOT take your case to the Supreme Court.
Consequently, none of us now know (for sure) whether our National Monuments (Amendment) Act 2004 is constitutional or not: though from Dr Gerard Hogan's "Daily Telegraph" remarks related in my posting above (at Fri Aug 17, 2007 09:58), it seems it is NOT constitutional: and consequently UNLAWFUL.
In other words, the whole matter of the very doubtful constitutional status of our "National Monuments (Amendment) Act 2004" is STILL all "up in the air": but, at the same time, the judge in Navan court who recently dealt with the Tara protestors has acted as though it was all 100% lawful.
Personally, I fail to see how any useful progress can be made regarding the protection of our heritage sites until the constitutionality of our National Monuments (Amendment) Act 2004 has been checked and decided upon by the Supreme Court.
I further believe that the Tara protestors should not be tried for any offence until after the constitutionality of our National Monuments (Amendment) Act 2004 has been checked and decided upon by the Supreme Court.
My interest in all this, though to some extent indirect, is nonetheless EXTREMELY serious and important from my viewpoint: in that I have been living in forced exile in Northern Ireland since December 2004, and I wish to able to return to my home in County Galway without having to run the risk of being corruptly criminalised (and possibly) imprisoned for an alleged "crime" which NEVER happened (as far as I'm concerned).
Unless something of significance is done to challenge the outrageous corruption in the legal profession in the Republic of Ireland, I believe it will NEVER be safe for me to return to my home in County Galway: allowing for the fact that I have been diagnosed as suffering from Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (C-PTSD) "as the result of traumas and stresses at the hands of individuals and public officials and bodies that he has encountered in his struggles to try to correct environmental wrong doings": as described by my GP (Dr Michael McCavert) in his "To Whom It May Concern" letter dated October 28th 2005, and which ALL the lawyers in the Republic of Ireland that I, and other members of my family, have given copies to are COMPLETELY ignoring.
Incidentally, I believe the way Mr Justice Thomas Smyth handled the EUROS 600,000 fee business in your case is one of the very best examples I can provide of outrageous corruption in the Republic of Ireland's judiciary. First he unexpectedly saddled you with a huge bill, and then he used the huge bill to get you to abandon your plan to take your very important and very necessary constitutional challenge to the Supreme Court, as would have been entirely normal in such cases. 
By such tactics, Mr Justice Thomas Smyth and his colleagues in the judiciary can continue (indefinitely as things stand) to use National Monuments (Amendment) Act 2004 "law", which is in all probability ILLEGAL LAW, to support the construction of PPP toll roads which have been designed to destructively plough through places like Tara, County Meath (the Bronze Age Capital of Ireland as far as I know) and Turoe, County Galway (the Iron Age Capital of Ireland as far as I know).
If the situation outlined in the paragraph immediately above does not represent "legal profession corruption" at its very worst, then I don't know what does?
