W.N. Osborough’s The Irish Stage: A Legal History (Four Courts Press 2015) was successfully launched by Judge Bryan MacMahon at Books Upstairs, Dublin, on Thursday 8 October.
Judge MacMahon is a former judge of the High Court and Chairman of the Board of the Abbey Theatre, and spoke enthusiastically about the book.
Professor Osborough explained that the idea for this book had originated while he was conducting research for Law and the Emergence of Modern Dublin: A Litigation Topography for a Capital City, during the 1990s.
The launch was well-attended by members of the Society and others with an interest in law, literature and theatre, and Books Upstairs provided a marvellous venue.
