This book provides a concise description of Early Irish Law, based mainly on the law-texts of the 7th -8th centuries. It is intended not merely for the specialist in Old Irish studies, but also for general readers with legal or historical interests. It includes an account of the later ‘Brehon’ families who continued to practise Irish law up to the end of the 16th century.
