Constitional Monarchy offers the best opportunity to combine a healthy respect for tradition with modern democratic values.

It is not sufficient for future Irish High Kings to reign, but they should also rule.
No hereditary Irish High King has every wielded the kind of totalitarian power associated with modern dictators.
Even the modern democratic state in the 26 counties of Ireland, has more control over many aspects of its citizen's lives than Irish High Kings ever had.
There is no guarantee that hereditary successsion or, indeed, election by the people, will assure competent leadership. No system of government offers such a guarantee.
Many Irish politicans are primarily occupied with plans and activities to:
1. Erode Ireland's sovereignty with European unification;
2. To allow and encourage mass immigration;
3. And the imposition of a multi-cultural society on the Irish people,
a treble betrayal that would never, be considered or permitted , by Ard Ri Brian Boru.
Certain qualities inherent in monarchy and democracy give the former advantages over the latter.
History shows that it is often desirable that a king should be able to act as a real check on the powers of a government.
Once a wise, effective law of succession has been firmly established, monarchy provides government with an invaluable stability and also a certain fairness.
When the hereditary principle is unchallenged, no one outside the monarch's immediate family, no matter how rich or poor, can hope to be King.
The concept of Irish Republicanism, with its close association with the Rights of Man,  has created serious divisiveness among the Irish people. It is critically fragmented, beyond repair or human aid.
As long as constitutional monarchies survive, they serve as an realistic tribute to the valuable heritage of traditional kingship.
Every human institution, be it monarchy or republic, has its good and bad sides. This will continue to be the case, as long as our world is inhabited by humans and not by angels.
The State should be, at all times, the servant of natural law.
The restoration of the Irish High Kingship, in a modern form, is the best form of government that offers the best prospects of safeguarding natural law, in current circumstances, in Ireland.
Generally speaking, democracy means the right of the people to participate in determining their own development and future.
Monarchy is that form of government in which the Head of State is not elected, bases his office on a higher law, with the claim that all power dervies from a transcendental source.

The Common Good
The common good, in Ireland, among other things,  requires:
1. A British  withdrawal from Ireland;
2. An Irish withdrawal  from the EU;
3. And the  restoration of the Irish High Kingship.
Ireland for ever!
By   Joseph Crisp II

 I am very much a  "cultural purist" and feel very strongly that every day Ireland is a republic is another piece of evidence that the British occupation succeeded in changing Ireland and making the country something other than what it was when they found it.
Particularly today, with so many new foreign influences coming into Ireland, some institution (such as High Kingship) is needed to ensure that Ireland remains "Irish". I am working now (albeit very slowly) on some additional pages on Ireland for one of my overflow sites.

*Interesting Historical Note: During the American Civil War, the Union  vs Confederate conflict came face to face with the Mexican monarchy vs republic conflict at the Brownsville, TX/Matamoros, MX border.
Based on the alliances of the time, the Confederates tended to favor Emperor Maximilian while the Unionists supported President Benito Juarez when each happened to be holding Brownsville, the ONLY exception being when the Union troops holding the city happened to be Irish Catholics, who were
very much supportive of the monarchy and very much opposed to Juarez' anti-Catholic republic. 
Keep up the good work, and Ireland Forever!
