Your comprehensive guide to the law that has built up around the Motor Insurers’ Bureau of Ireland (MIBI) Agreements. The MIBI deals primarily with compensation of victims in road traffic accidents where the drivers are untraced and uninsured. This book focusses on both statutory and common law liability, together with European law.


The third edition benefits from analysis of recent key developments in the law since the previous edition, which was published in 2012, including:

  • ­
  • The CJEU’s finding of the MIBI to be an emanation of the State subsequent to Farrell v Whitty
  • Mongan v Mongan and MIBI, which dealt extensively with the use of a vehicle as a weapon and whether the MIBI could be liable for assaults
  • The CJEU’s landmark Vnuk decision, which widened the potential liability of the MIBI to include normal use of vehicles on private property;
  • Smith v Meade and MIBI with its important consequences relating to insurance policies

The chapter on foreign vehicles has also been revised to reflect the post-Brexit landscape.
