to Irish Law:
Courts and Case law
The main courts website is at www.courts.ie
and contains a particularly useful
Frequently Asked Questions section
(under 'About Us').
The principal printed series of reports are the Irish Reports and Irish Law Reports Monthly, cited as ‘IR’ and ‘ILRM’
respectively. Many cases remain
unreported and are kept in the libraries of the main Universities or
professional bodies. For
electronic access to reported and unreported cases, see the following:
- British and Irish Legal Information Institute
The most significant data here are in the Supreme Court (‘IESC’) and High Court (‘IEHC’) directories. The database is not comprehensive
so it is important to consult other sources. The majority of cases date
from 1997 (High Court) and 1998 (Supreme Court.)
Bailii also provides access to decisions of the Competition Authority (‘IECA’) and Information Commissioner
In addition, Bailii also introduced vendor-neutral citations for the first time in Irish
case-law, e.g. a Supreme Court case on Bailii may be cited as  IESC 12.
- Irish Legal Information Initiative
This site provides a database of 'leading Irish cases' classified by
subject, e.g. constitutional law cases include Attorney General v X
(1992). These cases are also available on the Bailii site.
Note also the Irlii index of cases.
