This is an annual marketing event begun in 2010 by an Italian–Irish business organisation, called the Irish Traditional Italian Chipper Association, to promote their wares and to distinguish what they describe as authentic Italian chippers from imitators.[68]
  • 31 May – Ireland was again declared a tax haven by the United States, a response provoked by a diplomatic letter claiming it was not.[69] U.S. senators Carl Levin and John McCain concluded: "Most reasonable people would agree that negotiating special tax arrangements that allow companies to pay little or no income tax meets a common-sense definition of a tax haven."[70]

June[edit]

  • 17–18 June – While the U.S. President, Barack Obama, attended the G8 Summit in County Fermanagh, his wife Michelle and their daughters Malia and Sasha visited Dublin and Glendalough.[71][72]
  • 19 June – Independent Teachta Dála Clare Daly, speaking in Dáil Éireann, criticised the media and the government for their "slobbering" over the Obama family during their visit to Dublin and for "showcas[ing] us as a nation of pimps – prostituting ourselves in return for a pat on the head" and just stopping short of "deck[ing] the Cabinet out in leprechaun hats decorated with a bit of stars and stripes to really mark abject humiliation". Daly suggested Barack Obama was a war criminal as he "facilitated a 200 per cent increase in the use of drones which have killed thousands of people, including hundreds of children". She also criticised the special news bulletins covering such trivial items as what Michelle Obama and her daughters ate for lunch in Dalkey. The Taoiseach, Enda Kenny, dismissed her comments as "disgraceful".[73][74]
  • 24 June – The Irish Independent newspaper released secret recordings containing recorded telephone conversations between Anglo Irish Bank senior manager John Bowe, who had been involved in negotiations with the Central Bank, laughing and joking as he tells another senior manager, Peter Fitzgerald, how Anglo was luring the State into giving it billions of euros.[75]
  • 27 June – Senator David Norris spoke out against the abolition of Seanad Éireann, describing it as "a fraud perpetrated on the Irish people". Norris also criticised the government's attempt to reduce further the powers of the presidency, to make it "impossible" for an independent to get elected and to create more "jobs for the bloody boys the ones who dragged us into the ruins of this economy". Norris, as Father of the Seanad, called again for the Taoiseach, Enda Kenny - a "democrat who wouldn't recognise democracy if it came up and puked in his face" - to debate the matter with him, vowing to "peel the layers of dishonesty and populism away from him and show the Irish people what's really being done to them so they won't be fooled another time until they know what way to vote".[76][77]
  • 29 June – Thirty thousand people attended the annual gay pride parade in Dublin, the climax of a ten-day festival that marked three milestones: the 40th anniversary of the founding of the Irish Gay Movement, the 30th occasion of the gay pride parade, and the 20th anniversary of the decriminalisation of homosexuality in Ireland.[78]

July[edit]

  • 2 July – Requests for asylum and asylum assistance were made to 19 countries, including Ireland, on behalf of American whistleblower, Edward Snowden, who was stuck in the international transit lounge of Sheremetyevo International Airport in Moscow.

  • 15 July – Senator David Norris told Seanad Éireann that Fine Gael TD Regina Doherty was "talking through her fanny" [vulva]: "I object in the strongest possible way to the idea that someone who has spent years in the House should have to listen to the Regina monologue from someone who has not been a wet weekend in the Oireachtas and is talking through her fanny". Norris was angry at Doherty's remarks during the launch of her party's referendum campaign to abolish the Seanad.[86]
  • 18 July – Beaumont Hospital announced it had been operating on patients using instruments which had been used on a patient with the fatal degenerative brain disease Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease.[87]

August[edit]

  • Early August – Journalist and broadcaster Vincent Browne, in a Sunday Times interview, reacted to programmes about Travellers broadcast by his employer TV3, saying, "To say it was embarrassing doesn't begin to describe it. I squirmed and I railed against it. The Travellers stuff is appalling, absolutely appalling." When he complained to TV3 executive Ben Frow, Browne said he was "just amused at my indignation, which meant I couldn't get anywhere with it".[92][93]
  • 6 August – The three-day Dublin Bus strike came to an end after Dublin Bus management and the two main unions at the company, the National Bus and Rail Union and SIPTU accepted an invitation to talks at the Labour Court.[94][95]

It is a wonderful sight when the sun shines through the clouds and you see a green jewel after all the blue of the Atlantic."[100]

October[edit]

  • 4 October – Two constitutional referendums were held.

  • 27 October – Irish Standard Time (IST) ended.[30]
  • 30 October – Anti-Semitic and hate posters which were attached to a bridge in the Sugar Hill area of Limerick were removed. Some of the posters targeted Minister for Justice, Alan Shatter, who is a Jew. The broad theme of the posters was the recent years of Irish economic calamity, and attacked politicians, the main political parties, the new property tax, and the recent government budget, but they also attached anti-Semitic sentiments to their complaints: "Shatter has learned from his homeland how to crucify the little people" (Shatter's actual homeland is Ireland), "Jewish influence in our dictatorship has brought Palestinian devastation to Ireland," and under a picture of Shatter, "Ye will all be as poor as the Palestinians when are finished and be glad to have €5 a day." The police performed an investigation and identified as responsible members of a far-right extremist group.[109][110]

The last Japanese visit by a taoiseach was in 2009.[125][126][127]
