Very interesting. The Courts, however, are generally disinclined to intervene in Oireachtas procedures.

Michael O'’Higgins is a pretty eminent barrister, who won't come cheap

I'd be curious if a judge grants his right to challenge... as judges aren't too fond of going near the Orieachtas

Also I'd expect the High Court to do a divisional sitting on this for the substantive hearing.... and wonder might they even do one tomorrow

Lastly I hope he is let challenge, and that it fails.... and he appeals.... and it fails, and the Supreme Court order costs against him

Sure next we will get a taoiseach going to court trying to stop a tribunal he established. Oh, sorry, that already happened.

Would have got Gerard Hogan myself, but there you go!!

Most unusual to not be granted leave to apply for Judicial Review in such cases. Case will probably be heard. Could well be a divisional court, though it's long vacation and no substantial hearing until October I would have thought.

It will be interesting to see what grounds he advances for the challenge. One wonders is he going to spring the "Mary Harney has a big gob" defence.

Shades of Ahern's tactics at Mahon, delay, delay, delay, wonder if he has applied for legal aid.

He's certainly ruining any chances for his son at future elections with all this nonsense.

Bizarre, unprecedented...you know the rest. Like a desperate balloonist trying to stay in the air Ivor is using everything and anything to avoid the inevitable crash to earth. I hope the "Engine" has something a bit more substantial to embarrass his former masters.

What about the famous Cearbhaill O'Dálaigh/Brian Walsh judgment in the Haughey case which in effect scuppered the PA committee into the diversion of money of buy arms ? Anything can crawl out of the courts.
