dc.description.abstract The difficulties in balancing judicial independence and accountability, the importance of formal processes around investigation of judicial conduct, and the need for clarity on the respective roles of the branches of government under the separation of powers were all issues that were highlighted by the recent controversy surrounding the conduct of a Supreme Court Judge in Ireland. This article considers the detail of the controversy, in the context of the Irish system governing judicial discipline and removal, analyses certain problems underlined by the episode, and finally reflects on lessons that may be helpful for any jurisdiction grappling with the complex issues involving judicial discipline and removal. en_US
