Ben Gilroy’s halting of a Sheriff using only the Constitution of Ireland has become a viral video over night. With reported viewings as far a field as Irishtown in New York, USA.
In this video the Sheriff is greeted at the gate of this dwelling by a crowd of people with the best interests of the family in mind. Ben immediately asked the Gardai were they there under their oath. This was to immediately remove any doubt that they Gardai were there on that day performing for a private entity, and not performing the job the Irish taxpayer pays them for, protecting the peace. It is readily apparent in the video that the Gardai in question does not understand the question, having made his oath under the constitution of Ireland, upon taking on the role. More after the video.
Sheriff Halted By Constitution
Another important point about this video, that may not be readily apparent, is that the man Ben is talking to, seems to be perfectly aware of the unlawfulness of his role. He immediately attempts to claim that he is in fact the Sheriff. This seems to be done in an attempt to hide the fraudulent nature of the transaction as described by Ben, where in the county registrar is also the Sheriff. In effect, this allows the man in question to order the eviction of a family from their home, and then directly profit from that eviction. This, as Ben happily points out to the so-called Sheriff, is totally unlawful as it breaks laws regarding separation of power.
On a more light-hearted note. Note how when Ben is questioning the so-called Sheriff on his role, and continually mentions the Constitution, the so-called Sheriff exclaims “I’m nothing to do with the Constitution”. The Gardai immediately look as though they would rather be anywhere else in the world but at that gate. As Ben says himself, the man arrived a bit late to execute the order, as his jurisdictional ended in 1922. His GPS must have led him to the wrong Island!
Brendan Burgess is a man who RTÉ roll out at the slightest talk of economic decent. Most recently he was wheeled out by RTÉ to offer an alternative point of view to that of Seamus Sherlock, who is currently attempting to save his house from repossession.
Here is a video of Brendan Burgess advising people around the time of the bailout, that the low-priced shares of the Irish banks were NOT a sign of trouble in the pipeline (which we of course now know they most certainly were a sign of trouble), but that in fact we would look back at that point in time in years to come with a deep sense of regret for not “filling our boots” with shares, as they would increase exponentially in value.
The Sound Advise Of Brendan Burgess:
Our own favourite part would undoubtedly have to be at the very end when the presenter turns to Brendan Burgess and says “Well on your own head be it!”.
The point to take away from this is of course that for a so-called expert, Brendan Burgess has been wrong time and time again. Go to YouTube, enter “Brendan Burgess” into the search engine, and watch a few more videos. We’ll be willing to bet that you can’t make it to the end and still find him a credible source of financial information from before, during, and after the boom!

Few realise that it was in fact People For Economic Justice who uncovered the full list of bondholders of the now defunct Anglo Irish Bank.
As we are all aware, Fine Gael ran a very successful campaign during the 2011 election. This campaign ran on a platform that marshaled around one convincing and powerful phrase: “Not one more cent!”. This promise was broken in record time upon Fine Gael and Labour taking office, when the Government stated that the repayment of the bondholders was paramount to securing funding from the so-called Troika (meaning Threesome in Russian) of The European Central Bank, The European Union, and The International Monetary Fund.
This out-and-out lie was proven false almost immediately. There were NO provisions what-so-ever in Ireland’s bailout deal, which sets the requirement of the repayment of bondholders. In addition to this revelation, Enda Kenny and his cabinet stated on no uncertain terms, on more than one occasion, that not only were they planning on repaying 36 billion of the Irish taxpayers money to these bondholders, but that they did not even know who these bondholders were!
Without further ado, let People For Economic Justice clear up any confusion the Government may have about who the bondholders are.
