Time to abolish elitist and irrelevant Seanad - Kieran Mulvey Friday 27 September – The One House group - which is campaigning for a Yes vote - has said next week’s referendum is a unique opportunity to abolish the Seanad. With one week to referendum day, Kieran Mulvey, a public servant and former trade union leader, said: ‘The choice in the referendum is between abolition or retention of the status quo. Keeping the upper house will only ensure there is another 75 years without reform. ‘The Seanad is a toothless assembly elected by a small elite of politicians and university graduates for 75 years. It wields no power and it has never held government to account.’ Kieran Mulvey is involved in the independent civil society group One House that is calling for a Yes vote in the referendum on 4 October.
