On the passing Dr Éamon Phoenix


The Irish Legal History Society is deeply saddened to hear of the passing Dr Éamon Phoenix.

Dr Phoenix gave a superb paper to the society in March 2022 at Clifton House in Belfast entitled ‘Sir Denis Henry (1864-1925): Barrister, Catholic Unionist Politician & First Lord Chief Justice of Northern Ireland’

He was well known and highly regarded in Belfast and across the island.

The Irish News, a paper he contributed to on a regular basis, reported his passing here.
