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.

Did you know?

Leinster House was just one of the houses owned by James Fitzgerald, Duke of Leinster. His country house was at Carton, County Kildare, and he built Frescati House in Blackrock as a school for his many children.

The Senator is trying to use the House for her own hobby-horse.
Michael Lanigan, Seanad Éireann, 29 November 1978
