Irish Cabinets Since 1919

The executive branch of the modern Republic of Ireland is known as the Government. However, since 1919, cabinets have functioned in the southern twenty-six counties of Ireland under two other names: the Aireacht (or Ministry) of the 1919–1922 Irish Republic, and the Executive Council of the 1922–1937 Irish Free State. There also briefly existed, immediately before the creation of the Irish Free State, an interim cabinet called the Provisional Government. The Ministry and the Provisional Government functioned in parallel for a number of months in 1922.

Famous quotes containing the words cabinets and/or irish:

    The progress of freedom depends more upon the maintenance of peace, the spread of commerce, and the diffusion of education, than upon the labours of cabinets and foreign offices.
    Richard Cobden (1804–1865)

    For generations, a wide range of shooting in Northern Ireland has provided all sections of the population with a pastime which ... has occupied a great deal of leisure time. Unlike many other countries, the outstanding characteristic of the sport has been that it was not confined to any one class.
    —Northern Irish Tourist Board. quoted in New Statesman (London, Aug. 29, 1969)
