Description:
There are perhaps few public services as poorly understood or indeed as poorly appreciated as the coroner service. Its association with what are often tragic circumstances does not encourage the general public to look behind the process of death investigation of which the public inquest is an important but not the sole aspect of coroner work. The role of the coroner has evolved over hundreds of years and its present shape and organisation is very similar to that which existed before the turn of the last century. Apart from the Coroners Act, 1962 which updated some legislative aspects of coroner work, there has never been a comprehensive review of the Irish coroner service in terms of assessing its adequacy for societal needs.
