‘This is a very well presented volume. It contains numerous references to legal documents, pieces of legislation and the wide array of individuals associated with the commission. The addition of a number of appendixes containing the documents referred to in the text and biographical notes are very useful for the reader.’ Marie Coleman, Irish Historical Studies.

‘This valuable book ends with a useful series of biographical notes on figures such as the Dáil Court judges, Diarmuid Crowley, Arthur Cleary, James Creed Meredith and Charles Wyse Power. It is a contribution to administrative, as well as legal, history, and the author has placed all students of the period in her debt. The publishers ... also deserve congratulations, for the production of the volume is admirable in every respect’, James Casey, Irish Jurist (2005).
