The Irish must truly miss being ruled by a King as they make every effort to enshrine them at every moment. The belief that only a Monarch can rule is part and parcel with the State funeral for ex-Irish leader. I’m sure that the current Taoiseach, Bertie Ahern believes in a Monarchy, when he is not kowtowing to other heads of state like King George, he is bowing to religious persuasion, and command. The belief that the King can commit any crime and be forgiven goes to the root of the issue as in the case of Haughey.
What has happened to the Republic, and Irish freedom from Kings?
