Abstract: This chapter examines the most significant emergency measures passed during the lifetime of the Irish Free State (1922 to 1937) that influenced the drafting of the Offences Against the State Act 1939. This examination raises the issue of whether initially controversial provisions produced during the Free State period became ‘normalised’ with the passage of time and with repeated use which, in turn, facilitated their reproduction in the Offences Against the State Act. The second theme of this chapter examines the historical experience of the emergency measures passed during the Free State period. This theme deserves attention because the Offences Against the State Act was not merely influenced by the textual provisions of the emergency measures that preceded it but also by the successes and failures of these measures.
