Something odd about the adoption?
From what I’ve read, you must be a resident of Ireland to adopt an Irish child. Roberts did not reside in Ireland. His wife didn’t either. Apparently they got around that requirement by somehow adopting them in South America. So the children might have been born in Ireland but then traveled to SA for the adoption. They are cute kids actually!
I ran across this case that Roberts ruled on
Roberts failed to recuse himself from this case even though he himself is an adoptive father AND the lawyer for the birth mother is a former law clerk and close friend of his.
