By Dáithí Mac Cárthaigh
This book discusses the status of Irish under the Constitution, in case law, and in EU law — both historically and at present. It covers planning law and language planning, education, broadcasting, the public service, the Gaeltacht, the Houses of the Oireachtas and the Courts. The Official Languages Act is comprehensively discussed and amendments are proposed based on best practice in Canada and in continental Europe.
This specialised text-book is suitable for students and legal practitioners and is written to be accessible to the general reader who is interested in the fortunes of Irish.
“It is my hope that readers of this textbook, in particular the new generation of solicitors and barristers concerned for the Irish language, gain its full benefit.” — Seán Ó Cuirreáin, Official Languages Commissioner 2004-2014
