The Constitutional Convention, which was set up by the Oireachtas in June 2012 closely mirrored our proposal. Nevertheless, of particular concern to us, was the narrow agenda set for it and that recommendations of the Constitutional Convention were not binding on the Oireachtas to put to referendum.
In the end, the Convention made sweeping recommendations for reform, even within its narrow agenda. However, virtually all of these recommendations were rejected or ignored by the Government.
We continue to campaign for each recommendation of the Convention to be put to the people in a referendum through publishing newspaper articles and regular lobbying of the Government, TDs and senators.
