The article analyzes the impact of the E.C.H.R. on the Irish administrative law. In particular, after reviewing the main reasons for the delay in the incorporation of the E.C.H.R., it focuses on the Irish ‘European Convention of Human Rights Act’ of 2003. The article underlines the main critical issues of the Irish system in light of Art. 6 E.C.H.R. (in particular, in light of the right to an oral hearing and of the independence and impartiality of the decision-maker). Taking into account the possibility of an ‘ex post compensation’ of said violations of Art. 6 E.C.H.R., the article then focuses on the evolution of the judicial review from the traditional ‘Keegan’ and ‘O’Keeffe’ to the new ‘Meadows’ paradigm, highlighting the significant increase of the intensity of the judicial scrutiny (in line with the so-called ‘full jurisdiction’ theory) due to the inclusion of a rigorous proportionality test.
