Judgment of the Supreme Court of Ireland, 'Crotty v. An Taoiseach' (9 April 1987)

In April 1987, the Irish Supreme Court upholds Raymond Crotty’s claim and challenges the ratification of the Single European Act. It appears that the ratification of any Community treaty containing at least one provision that fundamentally affects the legal nature, field of application or objectives of the Communities must give rise to a revision of the Irish Constitution, which requires a referendum.
