Close by Newtown Castle, seat of the O'Lochlainns - Chiefs of the Burren - is the site of the O'Davoren Law School, one of three Brehon Law Schools situated in the Burren. Between the years 1563 and 1569, Domhnall O'Davoren and his pupils compiled the manuscript now known as Egerton 88, containing an invaluable glossary of Brehon Law and a wide variety of law texts, one dating back to the 8th century.
The Burren Law School aims to recreate the tradition of legal learning associated with the Brehon Law Schools, allowing the past to illuminate the present in what promises to be a stimulating and entertaining weekend. It will be of interest to the public at large as much as to members of the legal/caring professions, historians and relevant interest groups.
