Find out about how we are commemorating significant events in the history of the Houses of the Oireachtas as part of the Decade of Centenaries.
In 1921 and 1922 we commemorated the Dáil debates on the Anglo-Irish Treaty.
The discussion on the Treaty was the most significant debate in the history of the Dáil. It was a crucial moment in Ireland’s history that set a new path for Ireland.
The documents of the Dáil during its revolutionary period (1918-1923) are now available online. The collection, comprising more than 66,000 pages, was digitised by the National Archives of Ireland in partnership with the Houses of the Oireachtas as part of the centenary of the First Dáil.
The Bibliography of Parliament in Ireland, from the Oireachtas Library & Research Service, lists works relevant to parliament in Ireland since the foundation of Dáil Éireann in 1919. If you are researching and writing about parliament in Ireland, you can use the bibliography to quickly generate your references.
Machnamh 100 is a series of online reflections, hosted by President Higgins, on the centenary of the War of Independence, Civil War and Partition. Machnamh 100 builds on the President's work to date during Ireland’s Decade of Centenaries. You can watch videos of the seminars on the President's official website.
