PETITION: REMOVE SEAMUS WOULFE FROM THE SUPREME COURT

Paul Murphy TD and Brid Smith TD have now submitted a motion to remove Séamus Woulfe from the Supreme Court. His attendance at the Golfgate dinner undermined the public health effort being made to stop the spread of Covid-19.

At a time when people couldn’t attend funerals of loved ones, he was at a dinner that broke the rules he was involved in drafting! He clearly thought the rules didn’t apply to people like him.

The TDs were due to have the motion to start the process of impeachment tomorrow. However the Ceann Comhairle, Seán Ó Fearghaíl, is blocking it. He has made a ruling about Standing Orders which makes no sense, in order to stop it being debated.

We are calling on other opposition parties to support our right to bring this motion and insist on accountability. It was widely accepted that the refusal of Séamus Woulfe to resign meant that the responsibility to deal with this was in the hands of TDs. However, now the utilisation of the only mechanism of accountability available to us is being obstructed.
