Drafting the Irish Free State Constitution challenges the myths
surrounding the Irish Free Constitution by analysing the document
in its proper historical context, by looking at how the
Constitution was drafted and elucidating the true nature of the
document. It examines the reasons why the Constitution did not
function as anticipated and investigates whether the failures of
the document can be attributed to errors of judgement in the
drafting process or to subsequent events and treatment of the
document. As well as giving a comprehensive account of the drafting
stages and an analysis of the three alternative drafts for the
first time, the book considers the intellectual influences behind
the Constitution and the central themes of the document. This work
constitutes a new look at this historic document through a legal
lens and the analysis benefits from the advantage of hindsight as
well as from the fact that the archival material is now available.
