16 is the age of consent
Then a Big Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm!
The age of consent in Ireland is 17 that is for gay, straight or any other kind you can think of.
The age of consent in Northern Ireland is 16, regardless of sexual orientation and/or gender, as specified by the Sexual Offences (Northern Ireland) Order 2008. The reason the age of consent was lowered to 16 in 2008 with the Order was to bring it in line with the rest of the UK.
I agree it is 16 in UK but the question posed by teri rose was in Ireland.
I had assumed Teri was referring to Northern Ireland, since the act took place up there
I should have said N.Ireland - sorry Guys! - But the point has been clarifed, Thanks!
New revelations: Iris lover feigned illness to end affair
YOUNG businessman Kirk McCambley had to feign serious illness to end his affair with MP Iris Robinson after she bombarded him with emails, texts and love letters.
Mr McCambley told Mrs Robinson that he had a form of cancer that threatened his life and affected his sexual performance, the Irish Independent has learned.
This emerged as the North's main parties begin trying to salvage the fragile power-sharing government after First Minister Peter Robinson temporarily stepped down from the post yesterday.
Stormont was plunged into crisis after Mr Robinson announced he was relinquishing control for six weeks in an attempt to clear his name from the sex and financial scandal engulfing his wife.
But it is unclear whether he will return to office following a break or whether he is being eased out in stages.
In a day of drama, his Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) stunned Stormont with the shock decision to install Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster in the top job.
Mrs Robinson is continuing to receive acute psychiatric treatment in Belfast.
It emerged last night that her former boyfriend, Mr McCambley, who had a teenage girlfriend while he was involved with Mrs Robinson, panicked when his lover 40 years his senior wanted constant attention.
Mrs Robinson harassed her then-teenage lover with texts, phone calls, emails and love letters, according to a source.
Mr McCambley broke off his relationship with Mrs Robinson by telling her that he had testicular cancer, the source added.
After their relationship finished Mrs Robinson turned hostile to her former lover and put him under enormous pressure to return money she had procured for him.
She knew his family for many years beforehand! - Wonder how old he was when they first became intimate. They are obviously NOT going to make that public!
Give it a while, short bursts not all at once
Its a minimum limit, NOT a target!
Homophobic Iris Robinson resigns from parliament
Northern Ireland MP Iris Robinson resigned from Westminster yesterday after it was revealed last week that she had solicited loans for her 19-year-old lover.
Robinson was expected to stay on as MP for Strangford until May, but a statement from the Treasury confirmed she had left.
It read: "The chancellor of the exchequer has this day appointed Iris Robinson to be Steward and Bailiff of the Three Hundreds of Chiltern."
MPs are not allowed to resign, so instead they are appointed to an office of the Crown, which the Three Hundreds of Chiltern are reserved for.
Robinson was expelled from the Democratic Unionist Party last week and has also stood down as an Assembly member.
Thats it then and she gets no "golden handshake" either.
Yes, ignomy, shame and ruin for Iris. Oh well. I'm sure she can always go and live in her place in Florida.
Rummor has it, something happened there as well Something about being taken back or being sold or something
Well she certainly won't be selling it anytime soon!
She will probably become a 'Celeb' in the USA following the lines of Di's Butler!
Iris Robinson under police investigation
Disgraced MP Iris Robinson is under police investigation after securing £50,000 (€57,000) from two developers to fund her toyboy lover’s restaurant business, it was disclosed tonight.
Police in Belfast said their organised crime branch which specialises in complex financial probes had been called in to establish whether any criminal offence had been committed.
A statement said: “The investigation will be conducted in a thorough and professional manner as expeditiously as possible. It will also be conducted with respect to the human rights of any person and in a manner that complies with the Police Service’s duty to carry out impartial and independent investigations in compliance with our Code of Ethics.”
Detective Chief Superintendent Roy McComb will head the inquiry.

This could develop into a long drawn out, expensive court case! At the Taxpayers expense again. I wonder if they will divorce?
More than likely.
Seems she's a complete and utter fruit cake after all, read all of it here
