Forget about the Seanad referendum, this is the vote we should have had. On Prime Time in 2003, the Chairman of the Irish Football Supporters Association Alan Hunter* demanded that the issue of Roy Keane's re-entry to the Irish squad be put to the people and publicly called for a Referendum.

Miriam O Callaghan had to try and stop herself from laughing and (just about) succeeded. Eamon Dunphy, meanwhile, did not try and stop himself from laughing and he also succeeded.

I'm not sure what article to the Constitution was being altered by Brian Kerr picking Roy Keane for a friendly against Romania but anyway... it should have happened.

This Seanad thing is just a sideshow from the referendum we should have had.

*Alan Hunter was an unreasonable loudmouth who assumed a frightening prominence in the wake of the FAI's decision to sell out the "Best Fans in the World" and sell the rights to home games to Sky Sports in 2002.
