I would imagine the signing will be recorded and played on the news that day given the significance of the event.

She has since deleted the Tweet, but people I trust on Twitter know that it's her account, so it looks like she's been formally denied leave for appeal, and that's it, it's over.

Official confirmation won't come through till next week probably.
Boasting about filibustering again? Utterly shameless.

ETA: original tweet (or a duplicate of it) still seems to be live.

Has all this legal silly buggers actually delayed the introduction of abortion by one day? The government line has always been that the services would come on line early in the New Year and AFAIK that is still on target. My understanding is that nothing could have happened legislatively for the past couple of months anyway because the Dail was on holidays...

Some indication of the pro-lifers 'fightback' plans here. I don't see how they're going to be able to 'target' individual women seeking abortion during the three-day waiting period though...

The waiting period is a farce and should be removed.

The fact that the damned amendment hasn't been removed from the Constitution by now is really annoying. The Dail should be taking that up this week ffs.

The Dail did their bit way back when the referendum bill was passed. It doesn't go back before them again (what if they voted against ratifying an amendment the people had passed?)

Just on RTE 1 Radio, Michael D has signed the 36th amendment into law. The 8th amendment is now gone into history.

Nothing of substance they can do about the legislation. Vast majority of TDs are committed to supporting the proposals set out by Simon Harris before the referendum. I suspect they'll barely even bother lobbying.

I expect that, as ever, they'll quietly move their previously unassailable barriers of what they are actually opposed to, and just set them up again a little further back and act as though that's what they were fighting against all along.

IOW their new battle will be all about conscientious objection.
