  Articles 2 and 3 of the Constitution of Ireland - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Article 2 and Article 3 of the Constitution of Ireland (Bunreacht na hÉireann) were adopted with the constitution as a whole in 1937, but completely revised by means of the Nineteenth Amendment which took full effect in 1999.
Prior to 1999, Articles 2 and 3 made the claim that the whole island formed one "national territory", which was offensive to unionists.
Invoking Article 2, some Northern Ireland nationalists elected to the UK parliament requested, but were denied, the right to be recognised in the southern parliament (the Oireachtas) as TDs (members of Dáil Éireann).

 Anglo-Irish Agreement - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Fianna Fáil leader, Charles Haughey, claimed the agreement was in conflict with Articles 2 and 3 of the Constitution of Ireland because it officially recognized British jurisdiction in Northern Ireland.
Future President of Ireland Mary Robinson resigned from the Irish Labour Party because she objected to the exclusion of unionists from the talks that led to the agreement.
UUP politicians Christopher and Michael McGimpsey even brought a suit against the Irish government in the High Court of the Republic of Ireland arguing that the Agreement was invalid because it contradicted Articles 2 and 3 of the Constitution of Ireland.

 THE CONSTITUTION OF IRELAND
This unofficial text of the Constitution is based on the text published prior to the referendum and voted on by the people in 1937 together with the subsequent amendments passed by the Oireachtas and voted on in referendum.
The Constitution of the Irish Free State, therefore, lacked one of the major essential attributes of effective constitutions, in that it was not the instrument of supreme law.
A crucial Article of the 1922 Constitution was Article 50, which provided for the amendment of the Constitution by the Oireachtas, without reference to the people, for a period of eight years from the date of the coming into effect of the operation of the Constitution.

 Articles - Ian Paisley   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-23)
As part of the deal, the Republic changed the wording of the controversial Articles 2 and 3 of the Constitution of Ireland, which had originally claimed its government´s ´´de jure´´ right to govern the whole island of Ireland, including Northern Ireland.
His fears were realised, when the Campaign for Homosexual Law Reform (Northern Ireland) appealed to the European Court of Human Rights to force the UK to extend to Northern Ireland the 1967 Sexual Offences Act which decriminalised homosexual acts between two men over 21 years of age and ‘in private’.
In 1980, the European Court of Human Rights ruled unanimously that the British government was guilty of breaching Article 8 of the ECHR by refusing to legalise consenting homosexual behaviour in Northern Ireland, and a year later the European Court of Human Rights made a similar ruling.

 Abraham Lincoln's Second Lecture on Discoveries and Inventions
This simple article -- the apron -- made of leaves, seems to have been the origin of clothing -- the one thing for which nearly half of the toil and care of the human race has ever since been expended.
Wool, the hair of several species of animals, hemp, flax, cotten, silk, and perhaps other articles, were all suited to it, affording garments not only adapted to wet and dry, heat and cold, but also susceptable of high degrees of ornamental finish.
In anciently inhabited countries, the dust of ages -- a real downright old-fogyism -- seems to settle upon, and smother the intellects and energies of man. It is in this view that I have mentioned the discovery of America as an event greatly favoring and facilitating useful discoveries and inventions.

 Our message to Blair: no peace without Sinn Fein - LLB June '97
Constitutional change was effectively ruled out, except for the Dublin Government who should, "in advance of a settlement", delete Articles 2 and 3 of their Constitution which define Ireland as the whole island.
In some areas there has been a fierce battle for the hearts and minds of nationalists with those - some within the SDLP - who want to see an all-Ireland settlement gaining ground against those who would be happy to see an internal settlement with minimal Dublin input.
It has long been the favoured strategy of the Northern Ireland Office to marginalise the "extremes" and do a deal with the centre ground.

 Revisited - The Real Reasons for the Upcoming War in Iraq: A Macroeconomic and Geostrategic Analysis of the Unspoken ...
However, contrary to one of the main points of this November 2000 article, the steady depreciation of the dollar versus the euro since late 2001 means that Iraq has profited handsomely from the switch in their reserve and transaction currencies.
This article further emphasizes the unfortunate economic imbalances of the U.S. economy, and suggests the potential geo-political fallout of a unilaterist war or an unstable aftermath in Iraq could create a significant divestiture of dollar denominated assets.
These articles indicate that many central banks are reducing their reliance on dollars, and quite possibly sending a message about their opposition to the U.S.'s position on Iraq.
