An Eye on the Law


Seán Ó Conaill, a PhD student in the School of Welsh, has contributed to a new book which deals with Law and the Irish language. The book Súil ar an Dlí (An Eye on the Law) discusses language rights, the 2003 Language Act in Ireland and the implications of the Act on Irish Law.

Before taking up his current post at Cork University, Seán was the holder of a full time PhD scholarship in the School sponsored by the government of the Republic of Ireland. The title of his PhD is ‘Law and Minority Language Rights’.

The book has been lauded in the Irish press. You can read an article about the book and about Seán’s contribution in the on-line national newspaper ‘Beo’ here.
