National Security Law in Ireland addresses national security law in the context of the criminal trial, examining the use of informers, surveillance and interception, and national security law issues outside the criminal context.

National security law is becoming increasingly relevant in the fields of immigration and asylum law and media law in that can affect newspapers' ability to publish stories which concern national security issues. Therefore this book, as well as dealing with criminal law, also covers a broader panoply of subjects of interest to lawyers and the layperson.
