The Irish court was produced through sympathetic engagements between men, where performances – including of bodies, clothing, emotions, speech-making, humour, banter, wit, storytelling and more – enabled truth to be communicated. Performances in court built character for observers, they enabled truth to be assessed, and they placed men at the heart of the legal system and the production of justice. Importantly, as these performances were played out not only in the courtroom but in the press, they became implicated in larger productions of national identity. This chapter draws together the key arguments made across this volume, arguing for gender as a creative force in the production of legal, social and national power relationships.
