Drafting the Irish Free State Constitution challenges the myths surrounding the Irish Free Constitution by analysing the document in its proper historical context, by looking at how the Constitution was drafted and elucidating the true nature of the document. It examines the reasons why the Constitution did not function as anticipated and investigates whether the failures of the document can be attributed to errors of judgement in the drafting process or to subsequent events and treatment of the document. As well as giving a comprehensive account of the drafting stages and an analysis of the three alternative drafts for the first time, the book considers the intellectual influences behind the Constitution and the central themes of the document. This work constitutes a new look at this historic document through a legal lens and the analysis benefits from the advantage of hindsight as well as from the fact that the archival material is now available.

Ireland's Constitution of 1937 represents the culmination of the 'constitutional revolution' begun by Eamon de Valera, John Hearne, and others from the 1930s. Marking the 75th anniversary, The Origins of the Irish Constitution, 1928-1941 is a comprehensive selection of key documents relating to the development and drafting of the Constitution. The documents have been collected from a variety of archival holdings, covering the period of 1929 to 1941. The book includes extensive commentary and annotations as a guide to the complex legal and philosophical problems that arose during the drafting process. This is a project of the Royal Irish Academy, in association with the National Archives of Ireland, with support from the Office of the Attorney General and the Department of the Taoiseach.

This meticulously researched book draws on extensive primary sources to put the Irish constitution in a clear historical perspective. Using accessible language, the authors examine the political context of the conception of the constitution in 1930s Ireland against the background of constitutional developments since the foundation of the state. They follow its passage through the drafting process, identifying and clarifying the precise roles of legal, administrative and religious personnel who contributed to the making of this final and extremely important document, which defined the nature of the modern Irish state.

This volume brings together academics and judges to consider ideas and arguments flowing from the often complex relationships between law and politics, adjudication and policy-making, and the judicial and political branches of government. Contributors explore numerous themes, including the nature and extent of judicial power, the European Court of Human Rights decision in O'Keeffe v Ireland, the process of appointing judges and judicial representation, judicial power and political processes. Contrasting judicial and academic perspectives are provided on the role of the European Court of Human Rights and the nature of exhausting domestic remedies, including a contribution from the late Mr. Justice Adrian Hardiman. The role of specific judges, social and political disputes and case law are examined and socio-economic rights, the rule of law and electoral processes are all addressed.

The Constitution of Ireland: Perspectives and Prospects brings together a range of Irish and international commentators to examine some of the most significant current issues in Irish constitutional law. Based on a selection of the papers originally presented at a conference to mark the 75th anniversary of the enactment of the current Constitution of Ireland, the collection touches on many of the challenges facing Ireland today. These include: the possibilities for political and constitutional reform; the state of Ireland's democratic structures; national sovereignty in an era of international organisations; the role and conduct of referenda; questions of national identity and values; the meaning of modern Irish republicanism; and the place of religion in Irish society and government. The contributors describe how the Constitution has influenced developments in Ireland since 1937 and consider how it might continue to do so in the future. At a time when Ireland's political and constitutional structures are under review, The Constitution of Ireland: Perspectives and Prospects provides expert insight into these important questions.
