Ó Caoláin responds to challenge to children’s referendum result

19 November, 2012 - by Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin TD


Sinn Féin Children Spokesperson Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin has reacted to news this evening that a legal challenge has been mounted to the result of this month’s referendum on children’s rights.

Speaking this evening Deputy Ó Caoláin said;

“Given the Supreme Court ruling, which found that the government was in breach of the McKenna principles, it was always a possibility that such a challenge would be mounted. However, given the yes majority of almost 170,000 it would be my earnest wish that the decision of the electorate would stand.”
