Guidance for all matters related to Republic of Ireland law


What is Republic of Ireland law? The law of Ireland consists of constitutional, statute and common law. The highest law in the State is the Constitution of Ireland, from which all other law derives its authority.


The sources of Irish law reflect Irish history and the various parliaments whose law affected the country down through the ages. It is also similar to the law of the United Kingdom, from which much of it was drawn.


The European Communities Act 1972, as amended, provides that treaties of the European Union are part of Irish law, along with directly effective measures adopted under those treaties.


Whether you’re traveling to Ireland, living there as an expatriate, or are an Irish citizen, it’s normal to have questions about laws that affect daily life. But there’s no need to make an appointment and pay a high hourly fee. The legal Experts at JustAnswer.com are available at any time, day or night, without an appointment or hourly fees. Payment will only be approved once you’re fully satisfied.
