Speaking in the Seanad today,
Sinn Féin Senator Rose Conway-Walsh from Mayo called for a debate on the economics of Irish Unity
Comment: She no doubt agreed with these short videos
Senator Conway-Walsh said:
“I want to ask for a debate in this House and to invite the Minister for Finance Michael Noonan to discuss the economic realities of Irish Unity.
“ The Civil Service in this State has never properly prepared for even the possibility of unity on this island. There has never been a Green Paper on Irish Unity produced by the government of this State, despite promises to do so“.
Comment: she could have added remember these children?
This year we are celebrating 100 years of “cherishing all of the children of the nation equally, and oblivious of the differences carefully fostered by an alien Government, which have divided a minority from the majority in the past”.
Not much sign of the Irish Republic cherishing those kids.
Instead, knowing her fellow-Senators, Ms. Conway-Walsh said
“There is much talk at the moment about the Government’s lack of preparation for the outcome of the Brexit vote, and it would be as foolish for the Government not to start planning for the next major constitutional change.”
Query: Does she know something we don’t? What’s the next major constitutional change.”
