IRELAND’S High Court is to consider if it has the legal authority to hear a case brought by campaigners who want Brexit declared legally reversible.

Judge Peter Kelly has set a directions hearing for May 31 to decide if Ireland has the jurisdiction to hear a case Remainers hope will eventually be referred to the European Court of Justice for a definitive ruling.

A more substantive hearing on jurisdiction will take place in the Dublin court in June or July.

The case, which is being financed through crowdfunding, has been brought by English lawyer Jo Maugham QC who said he was pushing the idea that triggering Article 50 should not make backing out of Brexit impossible.

Theresa May invoked Article 50 of the EU’s Lisbon Treaty last month, formally notifying Brussels of Britain’s intent to leave the EU and triggering two years of divorce talks.

The European Parliament has said Brexit can be reversed with the consent of the remaining EU members but British government lawyers have said the process cannot be stopped now it is under way.

Mr Maugham said it was important Article 50 was deemed reversible in case the UK ends up saddled with a Brexit deal it is not happy with.
