ABSTRACT
This comment analyzes the development of the Republic of Ireland's unique and disproportionate significance concerning the European Union's constitutional ambitions. It argues that despite Ireland being one of the smallest member states of the European Union, its evolving concerns about sovereignty and unique legal requirements have given Ireland more power than it would otherwise have in determining the success of European Union centralization.
