KeyesSide First things first, Seanad Éireann hardly represents a Pandora’s Box of Irish  political ingenuity. It is not, hasn’t been nor shall it ever be in all likelihood, a  panacea for the civic, social and political ills of this State. But it shouldn’t be  abolished, and come Friday, October 4th, I will be voting ‘No’ to the proposed  Thirty-Second Amendment of Bunreacht na hÉireann. Why? Because this whole  Enda Kenny-inspired endeavour is nothing more than a stunt, a proposal dreamt  up and articulated by the then opposition leader at his party’s 2009 presidential  dinner, as he fought to retain his leadership. Bear in mind that only three months  previously at the MacGill Summer School in Glenties Mr Kenny had declared: “I see a new role for the Seanad entirely. The system of voting has got to be changed. Every graduate should be entitled to vote for the Seanad.
