Ireland: a parliamentary democracy

Ireland is a parliamentary democracy. The National Parliament (Oireachtas) consists of the President and two Houses: Dáil Éireann (House of Representatives) and Seanad Éireann (the Senate) whose functions and powers derive from the Constitution of Ireland enacted by the people on 1 July 1937. The Houses of the Oireachtas are situated at Leinster House, Dublin.

The youngest ever TD was William Joseph Murphy, who was elected in the 1949 by-election on at the age of 21 years and 29 days.

I am describing the strip tease politics as they divested themselves of every rag of decency when they embarked on their campaign. Their raiment was old-fashioned. It was a bit shabby. It was the 1948 design, but at least it covered their nakedness.
James Dillon, Dáil Éireann, 13 June 1951
