The Houses of the Oireachtas are situated at Leinster House, Dublin.

Leinster House was originally known as Kildare House, after James Fitzgerald, the Earl of Kildare. When Fitzgerald became Duke of Leinster in 1776, the house was renamed Leinster House.

We have heard of euphoria and catharsis, but if we have not been listening to a man intoxicated by the volume of his own verbosity I am greatly mistaken.
James Dillon, Dáil Éireann, 26 October 1955
