2015 appointments to the Irish Construction Contracts Adjudication Panel
On 15 January 2016, the Iris Oifigiúil (the Irish State Gazette) published a list of the Construction Contracts Adjudication Panel, newly-appointed for the next 5 years. It suggests that Ireland might be moving towards commencement of its Construction Contracts Act 2013. Interestingly, about 1/3 of the panel is based outside the Republic of Ireland – mostly England but a couple from Northern Ireland and one from Scotland.
It is tempting for small jurisdictions to be parochial, but experience from all sorts of disciples benefits from exposure to a certain amount of outside influence. Ireland has perhaps the best drafted construction adjudication law in the world – it is time it is deployed.

- Mr. Timothy Bouchier-Hayes
