According to Garda Recorded Crime Statistics non-fatal offences account for over eleven percent of all reported crime in Ireland with some 16,500 reported incidents in 2016 alone. Non-Fatal Offences Against the Person: Law and Practice is the first dedicated book on this subject in Ireland. This book provides an in-depth analysis to the laws relating to non-fatal offences in Ireland, with detailed expert annotations of the Non-Fatal Offences against the Person Act 1997, the principal legislation governing the law in this area.  The author also considers the various offences created by the Act, including an in-depth analysis of the relevant case-law, necessary proofs and possible defence options. The work is fully updated and consolidates all changes and amendments made over the past two decades since the enactment of the 1997 Act.
