Administration

The entire island of Ireland comprises four historically grown provinces (without administrative competence): Ulster, Connacht, Leinster and Munster. In the Republic of Ireland they are divided into 26 counties (counties) with county councils (governments, administrations). The cities of Dublin, Cork and Galway, each of which has a City Council, enjoy a special status. In the cities of Limerick and Waterford, a City and County Council governs the city and county together.

Law

The judges are nominated by the government and appointed by the president. The highest instances are the Supreme Court and the Court of Appeal. The High Court has unlimited jurisdiction over civil matters and criminal offenses. In 1939 a special court was created, which is responsible for state security offenses and decides without a jury.

The legal system is in the tradition of English common law, but has largely gained independence through the provisions of the constitution and more recent laws. The possibility of divorce was introduced by constitutional amendment after a referendum in 1995. Homosexual marriages have been legal since 2015. In a referendum in 2018, 66.4% of voters voted in favor of easing the previously strict abortion ban.

Education

The education system has three levels: primary, secondary and tertiary level. School attendance is compulsory from 6 to 16 years of age. Irish is compulsory in all public schools. Traditionally, most elementary and secondary schools are owned by the Catholic Church, but are financed by the state. However, this system is changing. Lessons are free of charge, only private schools are financed through school fees. The language of instruction is English, with the exception of Irish-speaking schools, which are growing in popularity, and schools in officially Irish-speaking regions. These are mainly in the west of Ireland (e.g. the counties of Galway, Kerry and Cork) as well as in smaller areas in the south and east. The entirety of these regions is called the Gaeltacht (German Gaelic area). According to the constitution, home tuition is possible under certain conditions at the request of the parents and with the approval and control of the school authorities.

Preschool is not compulsory. From the age of 4, however, children can be admitted to pre-school classes (infant classes) of a primary school. Nearly 40% of all four-year-olds and nearly all five-year-olds attend preschool classes, voluntary church-run, private, communal, Irish-speaking, or otherwise, for one to two years. They then attend primary school from grades 1 to 6.

The state-funded and managed secondary level is twofold. The three-year junior cycle or lower secondary education for children aged 12 to 15 concludes with a kind of junior certificate examination. The senior cycle or upper secondary education for pupils aged 15 or 16 to 18 begins with an optional transition year without an examination, which can include work placements, among other things. This schooling is provided at secondary schools, vocational institutions, community schools or community colleges. Their general educational, vocational or general craft-oriented diploma (Leaving Certificate, Leaving Certificate Vocational Program or

There are universities, technology and teacher training institutes in Ireland for tertiary education. The National University of Ireland is Ireland’s largest university with four constituent universities in Cork, Dublin, Galway and Maynooth and five colleges. Further of the eight higher education institutions are z. B. Trinity College Dublin, the University of Limerick and the Dublin Institute of Technology.
