The Statute of Limitations 1957 to 2000 are among the most litigated of Irish statutes, and recent changes to the law on limitation brought about by the Personal Injuries Assessment Board Act 2003 and the Civil Liability and Courts Act 2004 (together with their related Statutory Instruments) and the Defamation Act 2009 mean that legal advisers need the most up to date analysis of the law as it now stands.The law on adverse possession has suffered several reversals of emphasis and direction as the European Convention on Human Rights has featured for the first time in recent Irish cases. This text book sets out the law on limitation in a clear and accessible manner, and attempts to analyse the important judgements delivered in cases across all areas of civil litigation where defendants have sought to dismiss proceedings without regard to any arguments on the merits, on grounds that they are statute barred.CONTENTSIntroduction; Extensions of time outside the Acts Estoppel; Curtailing the limitation period outside the Acts Want of prosecution; Calculating time; Pleading and procedure; Real property; Actions in contract; Actions in tort (except personal injuries); Personal injuries actions; Minors; Persons of unsound mind; Fraud, concealment and mistake; Acknowledgement and part-payment; Death, Succession and Personal Representatives; Breach of Trust and Breach of Fiduciary Duty and other Causes of action in equity; Enforcement of judgments; Claims pursuant to Statute; Contribution; Arbitration; Miscellaneous cases.Martin Canny is a barrister
