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 1st July, 1937.
The Houses of the Oireachtas are situated at Leinster House, Dublin.
The Constitution empowers each House to make its own Standing Orders (Rules) with power to attach penalties for their infringement.
The sole and exclusive power of making laws is vested in the Oireachtas subject to the obligations of Community membership as provided for in the Constitution.
The primacy of Dáil Éireann in regard to the life of the Parliament is recognised in that a general election to Seanad Éireann must take place not later than 90 days after the dissolution of the Dáil.
In matters of legislation the Constitution provides that Seanad Éireann cannot delay indefinitely the passage of legislation. Bills to amend the Constitution and Money Bills i.e. financial legislation, can only be initiated in Dáil Éireann.
Seanad Éireann can make recommendations (but not amendments) to Money Bills and these must be made within 21 days as against 90 days for non-Money Bills.
In addition to its legislative role, each House may examine and criticise Government policy and administration. However, Dáil Éireann is the House from which the Government (the Executive) is formed and to which it is responsible.
Should the Government fail to retain the support of the majority of the Members of Dáil Éireann, the result can either be the dissolution of the Dáil and a General Election or the formation of a successor Government.

The Irish Jewish Museum was opened by the Sixth President of Israel, Chiam Herzog, while he was on a State visit to Ireland in June of 1985. He took great pleasure in undertaking this task as he lived as a child in the Portobello area of south Dublin during the time his father served as the first Chief Rabbi of Ireland. The Museum tells the story of the Irish Jewish community from the earliest references to a visit of Jewish merchants in 1079 up to the present day.
The Museum is in two parts with a Social History area on the ground floor and the old Synagogue which existed from the early 1900’s on the first floor. Both areas contain material related to the practise of the Jewish religion and photos of times past and present.
The museum is only a 15-20 minute walk from St. Stephen’s Green and very close to the Harcourt Luas Station as well as on frequent bus routes.
