6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By S. on 27 May 2010
Format: Paperback
Although this book was written by a lawyer it is eminently readable. Whilst dealing with what could be a very dull topic the author manages to be entertaining as well as informative. It is very well researched by a man who is obviously devoted to his subject, his enthusiasm is infectious. The brehon laws are the last and only true remaining trace of the druids. They also give an interesting insight into the way that gaelic society was structured, democratic and as equitable as is humanly possible. It is small wonder then, that the Irish people fought so hard to maintain thier traditions and to resist the imposition of the fuedal system. All in all a very good book, an excellent introduction to a complex subject. I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone who has an interest in the druids, the celts, the irish and or law in general.

For anyone for whom an Gaelige and its culture are important, this classic is essential reading. Of course it's dated and 'Victorian' in style. But the passion of this nationalist giant comes through the text - wish I'd known the feller! If you want to understand why an Gaelige is important in the 21st century, read and reflect on this wonderful text.....
