RTÉ event to discuss role of the Supreme Court

The author of the first history of Ireland’s Supreme Court is set to take part in a panel discussion on the court’s role and history in Dublin City Hall on Easter Monday.

The Irish Supreme Court – The Most Important Institution in the Country? is taking place as part of Cruinniú na Cásca, a Creative Ireland initiative presented by RTÉ.

The discussion will be moderated by Catriona Crowe and will hear from Ruadhán Mac Cormaic, author of The Supreme Court, and Professor Donncha O’Connell, head of the School of Law at NUI Galway.

Reviewing Mr Mac Cormaic’s book for Irish Legal News last year, Seosamh Gráinséir said it “reads with such ease that you tend to forget that you’re reading an extensively researched chronicle of the cases that have shaped Ireland”.

Free tickets are available from the Cruinniú na Cásca website.
