Public Law

Darragh is developing a broad public law practice. Prior to coming to the Bar, he had published academic articles and blog posts on a range of public law matters in the UK and Ireland and he recently contributed to the Fifth Edition of Administrative Law in Ireland, the leading work on Administrative law and judicial review in the Irish Legal system.

Darragh’s academic interest in public law is complemented by the experiences he gained in pupillage under the supervision of both Amy Manion and Alasdair Henderson, whom he assisted with the drafting of pleadings and advice in a number of public law cases.

In his own practice, Darragh recently acted for the Applicant in R (Zeghli) v Secretary of State for the Home Department, in which the Applicant sought Judicial Review of the Secretary of State’s decision not to treat her immigration appeal as a fresh claim. In granting permission following an oral permission hearing, the Upper Tribunal Judge commented that Mr Coffey had “conducted himself impeccably” during the hearing.

Darragh is a member of the Attorney General’s ‘Junior Junior’ panel and has assisted both the Government Legal Department and HMRC with document review and disclosure exercises on large cases.
