Abstract

The recent ESRI and Department of Finance predictions for Ireland’s future post-Brexit make for grim reading. The envisaged loss of up to 80,000 jobs is evocative of the recession and economic downturn in 2008/09. If the anticipated losses are to be believed, Ireland can expect catastrophic financial repercussions.

But that is just one of many post-Brexit scenarios to be considered. Another is the potential dynamic between the Oireachtas and the courts in post-Brexit Ireland. If our post-Brexit economy is as fragile as the recession years, it might precipitate the re-introduction of a short-lived, exotic legal animal: the legislative recital.
