Independent TD Pringle “extremely pleased” with today’s Supreme Court decision

Independent TD Thomas Pringle has said he is “extremely pleased” that the Supreme Court has today decided to refer three questions to the European Court of Justice on the validity of the ESM Treaty.

Pringle had argued the ESM treaty, which provides for a 500 billion euro permanent eurozone rescue fund, breaches the Irish Constitution, EU treaties and EU law.

Earlier this month it was decided to refer a point of law to the European Court of Justice about procedures relating to the effect and operability of the stability mechanism.
