Ireland: Supreme Court considers legal status of club

Earlier this month the Supreme Court gave judgment in Dunne v Mahon [2014] IESC 24. The decision is noteworthy because of the discussion it contains regarding the legal status and rules of an unincorporated association (a club). Mr Justice Clarke observed: "While a club is ... in one sense, no more than a set of interlocking mutual contractual relations between its members, it does have a form of existence which goes beyond that and which is subject to the jurisdiction of the courts".
