Date set for legal challenge
A HIGH Court challenge over what is claimed as the "far-reaching" effects of the May 31 referendum will be heard on June 19, writes Tim Healy.
Independent TD Thomas Pringle says the Government will use a Yes vote to push through another treaty relating to the European Stability Mechanism and to change an existing treaty on the functioning of the EU itself -- without putting these matters to a vote.
Mr Pringle claims both measures are in breach of the Irish Constitution and EU law.
The judge fixed the hearing of the matter for June 19.
