Notable Debate

Assassination of the Vice President, 12 July 1927

“It has been the fate of this country, perhaps more than others, to see torn from her ruthlessly devoted sons of great achievement and greater promise while the flowers of their service were yet hardly unfolded.”

- William T. Cosgrave

About the Oireachtas

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.

Lá na hEorpa

Teachtaireacht ón gCeann Comhairle

Comórfar Lá na hEorpa Dé Domhnaigh, an 9 Bealtaine. Déantar ceiliúradh ar Fhorógra Schuman, a rinneadh in 1950, ar an lá sin. Meastar gur chuir moladh Schuman maidir le cineál nua comhair pholaitiúil san Eoraip, a d’fhágfadh nach bhféadfaí cogadh idir náisiúin na hEorpa a shamhlú, tús le hAontas Eorpach an lae inniu.

Féach ar an bhfísteachtaireacht ghairid seo ón gCeann Comhairle, Seán Ó Fearghaíl, TD agus foghlaim tuilleadh faoi Lá na hEorpa.
