Abstract

This book is a welcome addition to the limited literature available on Muslims living in Ireland. It enters the wider discussion on the recognition and accommodation of religious minorities worldwide and more specifically the debates centred on Muslims in Europe. It builds on previous works such as the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs special issue on Islam in Ireland (2011) with an introduction by Oliver Scharbrodt and Tuula Sakaranaho, and contributions from others on the topics of migration, finance, education, and Islamophobia to name but a few. Scharbrodt et al.'s (2015) Muslims in Ireland: Past and Present further explores the themes of immigration, mosques, governance, and diaspora identity. These discussions and many more are expanded upon by Minority Religions under Irish Law, which acknowledges that the accelerated influx of migrants to Ireland within the last twenty-five years poses new legal challenges to the Irish state in recognising and accommodating Muslims in Ireland.
