The Treason Act 1939 is an Act of the Oireachtas Parliament of the Republic of Ireland It provides for the punishment of treason and related offences

Article 39 of the 1937 Constitution of Ireland defines treason as follows:

Section 1 of the Treason Act provides that treason can be committed by anyone in Ireland, or outside Ireland by any citizen or resident of Ireland It was a capital offence, until the death penalty was abolished in 1990 The sentence now is life imprisonment, with parole in not less than 40 years

Section 2 states that anyone who "encourages, harbours, or comforts any person whom he knows or has reasonable grounds for believing to be engaged in committing treason shall be guilty of felony"

The Act also provides that "No person shall be convicted of treason on the uncorroborated evidence of one witness" This also applies to the offence under section 2

Section 3 deals with misprision of treason
