Book description: The essays which appear in this volume are published to honour the Hon Mr Justice Nial Fennelly, judge of the Supreme Court of Ireland, and former Advocate General at the European Court of Justice, on the occasion of his retirement. The overall theme of the book is the relationship between European Union law and national law, and the role of courts in defining that relationship. The book consists of four main parts - the structure and functioning of the European Court of Justice, material issues of European Union law, aspects of Irish law and transversal issues of national and European law. The contributors are all either experts in European Union law, past and present members of the European bench, or members or former members of the Irish judiciary or Bar, many of whom have worked with or for Mr Justice Fennelly during his long and distinguished career at the Bar and on the bench.
