Remove women in the home clause and don't replace or with reference to carers.
Reduce divorce to two years waiting time.
Make art. 45 principles enforceable by individuals to vindicate their rights.
Protect public ownership of water.
Make all adults elect senators (not just the Taoiseach and 1000 politicians and graduates of certain colleges).
Amend art. 26 so constitutional bills can be reviewed in a fact based case, after 7 years.
What difference will this make or u are trying to make

This is definitely a question for the Electorate .

The Politicians cannot be trusted on immigration .
yes they can - to make a complete balls of it. After all the regular 'new Irish' ritual at the Conference Centre provides the ideal photo op for whichever clown happens to be the Minister at the time!

That everyone have to vote in a election
Abolish the Seanad
Reducing the voting age to 17
Allow EU citizens paying tax here to vote.

After 102 weeks of contributions they deserve a say on how their taxes are spent. And on whom.

Not suitable for inclusion in the Constitution; that's legislation.

Second removing the women in the home clause.
Yep. It is unworkable and insulting.

Also think tax credits transfer to spouses should be far higher. But that is legislation.

A stay at home parent is worth more than 5k.

A referendum should be held to reinstate article 48 of the original Irish constitution, giving the electorate a mechanism to remove sitting TD's and ministers, to change, stall or remove existing legislation by gathering enough signatures to trigger a referendum.
True democracy and actual accountability.
Damn right.

.
Not just water. We should also make it a constitutional obligation to protect the environment and make the biodoversity of Ireland public property such that it becomes a criminal offense for the likes of Monsanto et al to pollute it.

No, they can ************************ off. Voting is for citizens only.

Death penalty for cyclists who ride on the pavement. Harsh but fair.
