Abstract

This paper offers some reflections on constitutional law generally, to the extent that such general reflection are possible, and then addresses three topics: philosophical and other influences on the Irish Constitution of 1937, the "problem" of judicial review in a liberal democracy, and the challenge of harnessing executive power, while also providing for energetic and effective government, in the circumstances of the contemporary world.
