It was proposed by Councillor Mícheál MacDonncha:

 

“That this Council notes and welcomes the establishment of two new Citizens’ Assemblies by the Irish Government; it further notes that Citizens’ Assemblies are powerful democratic exercises that inform citizens, allowing them to debate specifics, develop positions and inform policy. They have operated effectively in many jurisdictions across the world. This Council calls on the Irish Government to establish an all-Ireland Citizens’ Assembly to debate and discuss our constitutional future. The debate on Irish Unity is live and growing, and we must plan for constitutional change, in the context of the Good Friday provision for a Unity referendum. 

 

This Council also invites officials from the Taoiseach’s Shared Island Unit to present to the Council and provide an update on activity and plans for the future.

This motion should be forwarded to the Office of the Taoiseach.

 

The motion was adjourned to the next council meeting, as the debate had not been concluded.
