THE CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION holds its seventh meeting today as it considers whether the offence of blasphemy should be removed from our Constitution.
The Convention met for the first time nearly a year ago to consider several proposals and make recommendations on whether or not referendums should be held on issues including lowering the voting age, same-sex marriage and changing the way we elected TDs.
The government has yet to take a firm stance on any of its recommendations although it is likely it will outline its position on same-sex marriage next week.
Some say the Convention has been an ideal opportunity to consider our 75-year-old Constitution and what parts of it need updating. Others might argue it’s been a talking shop and wasn’t allowed consider important issues like the future of the Seanad before it went to a referendum.
But what do you think? Has the Constitutional Convention been a success?
