Cearta (Eoin O’Dell) – www.cearta.ie
“Cearta is, literally, the Irish word for rights; and Cearta.ie will – I hope – be a blog about: matters of Irish law which make the headlines; or matters of law in which I have a research interest (Contract, Restitution, Freedom of Expression, Media, IT & Cyber law); or matters – of law, education policy, politics or otherwise – in which I have sufficient interest to muse in public for a few short sentences.”
