Analysis of the new Data Retention Act

Ronan Lupton (barrister and also chair of Irish telecom industry body ALTO) has written a particularly useful and well informed analysis of the impact of the new Data Retention Act on Irish law and has been kind enough to allow me to mirror it here:


  1. Dear Mr Mcintyre

    have you got any information as to what is the status of the case which the High Court had decided to refer to the Court of the European Union

  2. We're currently waiting to have the High Court determine the precise text of the questions to be referred to the ECJ. Hopefully we'll have movement on this in the near future.
