Compulsory Purchase and Compensation in Ireland comprises a comprehensive inventory of compulsory purchase powers by various State and semi-State bodies in Ireland, together with a detailed and practical analysis of the law of compensation in respect of compulsory purchase.

Divided into two highly practical sections, this 2nd edition key title provides the busy practitioner with a comprehensive guide to the complex subject of compulsory purchase and compensation.

Drawing on a wealth of learning and experience, the authors unravel the intricacies of the present law and practice, and clearly presents the advice and guidance legal practitioners working in this area will require.
