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.

100 years of votes for women

In 2018, we commemorate the centenary of the parliamentary vote for women in Ireland.

1918 was the first time Irish women were permitted by law to vote and run in parliamentary elections. In the same year, Countess de Markievicz became the first woman to win a seat in a parliamentary election in Ireland.

To mark the centenary, we are hosting a programme of events that will highlight the history of the suffrage movement and its leaders in Ireland and the impact of wider voting rights.
