Darragh Coffey accepts instructions in all areas of Chambers’ work and is developing a broad practice with a particular focus on public law. He appears in courts and tribunals on behalf of both Claimants and Defendants in a range of civil hearings.

Darragh joined Chambers as a tenant in September 2019 after having successfully completing 12 months of pupillage at 1COR. During pupillage, Darragh was supervised by Richard Smith, Richard Mumford, Amy Mannion and Alasdair Henderson, spending three months with each and gaining experience across Chambers’ main practice areas.

Darragh holds a first class honours Bachelor of Civil Law and a first class honours Master of laws degree, both from University College Dublin. Before coming to the Bar, he spent four years at the University of Cambridge where he is pursuing a Ph.D. in the area of human rights law. Prior to that, he served for six years as an Army Officer in the Irish Defence Forces. While at Cambridge, Darragh was the executive chairperson of the Cambridge Pro Bono Project, Co-Convener of the Cambridge International and European Law Conference and taught on the Human Rights and Civil Liberties module on the LLM course. These diverse experiences have helped him to develop a strong knowledge base and pragmatic, diligent and detail-orientated approach to his practice as a junior barrister.
