Irish Legal History: Two New Essays

Thanks to Robert Richards for bringing to our attention the publication last September by the University College Dublin Press of People, Politics and Power: Essays on Irish History 1660-1850 in Honour of James I. McGuire, edited by James Kelly, John McCafferty, Charles Ivar McGrath, because we would otherwise have missed its two chapters on legal history: Hazel Maynard's "The Irish Legal Profession and the Catholic Revival, 1660-1689," and John Bergin's "Irish Private Divorce Bills and Acts of the Eighteenth Century."
