LINKS between the Irish Bar and the Middle Temple have been strengthened with the visit to London of a delegation of 40 Irish barristers.
The visit at the end of last month featured a dinner at Middle Temple Hall hosted by the Inn's treasurer Michael Sherrard QC and a reception at the Royal Naval College in Greenwich, given by the Attorney General, Sir Nicholas Lyell QC. The Hon Mr Justice Donal Barrington headed the Irish delegation, which boasted a string of well-known senior counsels.
Links between the Irish Bar and Middle Temple date to the mid-14th century, according to trainee barrister Anne Faul, of the International Association of Irish Lawyers, who attended the event. "In the 19th century an agreement was forged, making it easier for Irish barristers to be called to the Middle Temple and vice versa," she said.
