Bibliography of Parliament


Bibliography of Parliament

Our new Bibliography of Parliament in Ireland lists works relevant to parliament in Ireland since the foundation of Dáil Éireann in 1919.

You can use the bibliography to generate references to sources such as books, journal articles, web pages and conference papers.


Historic Bills


Historic Bills

Bills published from 1997 to the present day are available in the Bills & Acts section of this website. The Bills that were published from 1922 to 1996 have recently been digitised and are being added to the website.

If you cannot find the Bill you are looking for, visit the Oireachtas Library's online catalogue. The catalogue has all the different versions of the Bills as they were amended.

Parliamentary fellowships

The Oireachtas parliamentary fellowship was designed to advance the study of and contribute to scholarship on the Houses of the Oireachtas and to promote knowledge and understanding of the history and workings of the Houses of the Oireachtas.

Oireachtas parliamentary fellowships were awarded in 2010 to Dr Brian Hunt and in 2011 to Dr Gavin Barret.

Research bursaries

The Library & Research Service has awarded a number of research bursaries to help academics explore our collections. Here’s a sample of how some researchers have used our collections to date.
