Gaelic For Agreement
The days of the handshake and honor agreements between the lords end. At the end of the century, many people decided that “getting it in writing” is the best form of legal protection. Despite this attitude, oral chords may still have some weight depending on their circumstances. The difficulty for the client is to prove that a verbal promise has been made. If there were no witnesses, it was “he said she said.” The recent quarrel between AIB and the Revenue Commissionaires over the existence of an agreement between them regarding the AIB`s DIRT tax obligations shows the difficulty of proving oral agreements. The Anglo-Irish Treaty of 1921 (Irish: to Conradh Angla-Éireannach), commonly known as The Treaty and officially the Articles of Agreement for a Treaty Between Great Britain and Ireland, was an agreement between the Government of the United Kingdom and Ireland and representatives of the Republic of Ireland that ended the Irish War of Independence.  It provided for the creation of the Irish Free State within one year as an autonomous domination within the “Community of Nations, known as the British Empire”, a status “equivalent to that of the Dominion of Canada”. It also offered Northern Ireland, created by the Government of Ireland Act 1920, an option to leave the Irish Free State, which it exercised. On December 15, 12, Robert Barton was questioned by Kevin O`Higgins about his notes on Lloyd George`s statement on the signing of the agreement or the renewal of the war: “Mr.
Did Lloyd George choose Mr. Barton as the left wing of the delegation and say, “The man who opposes peace can now and forever take responsibility for a terrible and immediate war?” Barton replied: “What he said was that the signature and recommendation of each member of the delegation was necessary, or that war would follow immediately, and that the responsibility for that war should lie directly with those who refused to sign the treaty.” This was brushed aside by opponents of the treaty as convenient proof that Irish delegates were forced at the last minute, and “terrible and immediate war” became a slogan in subsequent debates.  The next day, de Valera repeated this point: “This is why we were threatened with immediate violence against our people. I believe that this document was signed under duress, and although I have a moral feeling that any agreement reached should be faithfully executed, I will not hesitate to say that I would not consider it binding on the Irish nation.  It would be ridiculous to believe that we could send five men to conclude a treaty without the right of ratification of this Assembly. That is the only thing that matters. It was therefore agreed that this treaty is only an agreement and that it will only be binding when the D has ratified it. That`s what it`s all about.
