Key facts of the case:

The first three applicants were Irish citizen children and therefore citizens of the EU. The fourth and fifth named applicants were their mother and father. The Minister for Justice made a deportation order in respect of the fifth applicant, the children’s father, requiring him to leave Ireland and thereafter remain outside of Ireland. The family requested the Minister to revoke the deportation order, arguing that it would breach their family rights as protected under both Irish law and EU law pursuant to the Charter. The Minister refused to revoke the deportation order, and the family instituted judicial review proceedings seeking to challenge the deportation order on a number of grounds, including that the deportation was contrary to the Charter.
