The Irish Government's new Stability Treaty website

Irish citizens who are wondering what the Stability Treaty is all about can now visit a new Government website on the subject prior to the 31 May referendum on the treaty.

The new Stability Treaty website is part of a public information campaign by the Irish Government.

The referendum is being held to decide if Ireland may ratify the treaty on stability, co-operation and governance in the Economic and Monetary Union.

In Dublin, Taoiseach Enda Kenny, Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore and Minister of State for European Affairs Lucinda Creighton launched the website, which is also available in mobile format.

Kenny said the Government is determined to ensure the Irish people have full information on all aspects of the treaty.

“This will be the most comprehensive Government information campaign held to date for a European referendum,” Kenny said.

“We have launched the website so everyone can read the treaty and have it explained to them article-by-article.

“In early May, every single home in the land will receive a copy of the treaty with explanatory material. Closer to polling day, every home will get another information note to help make their final decision as well-informed as possible,” Kenny added
