Social issues should not be dealt with Constitutionally

All this hand wringing about abortion and other social issues is so typically Irish and makes one fear that despite everything over the last six years, nothing has changed.
I think we all know that there won't be any meaningful reform or change as long as Enda Kenny's generation of the grey old men from the 1970s is still in control. Mr Kenny is nothing if not the political son of Liam Cosgrave.
The 1937 Constitution is clearly not fit for purpose and was written for an Ireland in a period of time that has no connection to the reality of how Irish people live today.
