Text of statute as originally enacted

The Statute Law (Ireland) Revision Act 1872 (35 & 36 Vict c 98) is an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom which repealed, as to Ireland, certain Acts of the Parliament of England which had been extended to Ireland royal writs or acts of the Parliament of Ireland down to Poynings' Law (1495). The act was intended, in particular, to make the revised edition of the statutes already published applicable to Ireland.[3][failed verification] The repeals largely mirrored those made for England and Wales by the Statute Law Revision Act 1863. The Statute Law (Ireland) Revision Act 1878 repealed acts of the Parliament of Ireland.

This Act was retained for the Republic of Ireland by section 2(2)(a) of, and Part 4 of Schedule 1 to, the Statute Law Revision Act 2007.
