Hickey, Tom orcid logoORCID: 0000-0001-7618-6786 (2021) Judges and the political organs of state. In: Farrell, David orcid logoORCID: 0000-0002-0528-4335 and Hardiman, Niamh orcid logoORCID: 0000-0002-3233-0181, (eds.) The Oxford Handbook of Irish Politics. Oxford Handbooks . Oxford University Press, Oxford, pp. 213-228. ISBN 9780198823834

This chapter considers the record of the Irish Supreme Court in its constitutional policing of the two political “organs of State.” It outlines the basis upon which the judicial organ enjoys the authority to determine the limits of the powers of the Oireachtas and Government. It explores the various approaches taken by judges and courts in a selection of the main cases in the period 1970-2020.
