Abstract: Considers the requirements in the Anglo Irish Treaty 1921 on the appeal to the Privy Council, the resulting provision in the Constitution and  Irish petitions heard by the Privy Council. Examines the Erne Fishery case and the Bill proposing the removal of the right to appeal to the Privy Council. Discusses the continuation of the appeal in the Erne Fishery case in spite of an amendment to the Bill to make it retrospective and the Privy Council's declaration that the abolition of the right of appeal was lawful.
