Under the Competition Act 1991 Irish law was aligned with the competition rules of the EC. This book examines this radical reform and the Competition (Amendment) Act 1996, providing a concise introduction to competition law in Ireland. The book describes: developments in competition theory which influenced the development of competition policy and law; the role of the state as regulator and participant in the market; common law restraint of trade rules; interaction of the statutory and common law systems; and the role of institutions involved in the formation and implementation of competition law and policy. The main subject concentrated upon in the text is an examination of the European and Irish rules.
