Queer Thing is a new radical queer group in Dublin. We hope to combine politics and fun, and put on events, workshops, film festivals, etc. We want to foster a radical queer community in Dublin, an alternative to the mainstream gay scene and the (mostly) hetero radical community.

Crotty v. An Taoiseach (1986) was a landmark decision of the Irish Supreme Court which found that Ireland could not ratify the Single European Act unless the Irish Constitution was first changed to permit its ratification. The case established that significant changes to EU treaties required an amendment to the Irish constitution – always done by means of a referendum – before they could be ratified by Ireland.

‘The question therefore is whether the State in attempting to ratify this Treaty is endeavoring to act free from the restraints of the Constitution.’
—Walsh J (Supreme Court Judge)
