The current Irish '''Taoiseach''' (''tee-shokh''; think 'Prime Minister' but don't actually say it) as of 2014 is Enda ([[FandomBerserkButton NOT]] "Edna") Kenny of Fine Gael (''fin-uh gale''), and his Tánaiste (''tawn-ish-tuh''; Deputy Prime Minister) is Joan Burton of the Labour Party. Enda Kenny is the Father of the Dail (longest-serving TD), but [[OlderThanTheyLook doesn't look it]] (you wouldn't think from his pictures that he was in his 60s, trust us).

Prior to him, it was '''Bertie Ahern'''. He stood down on 6 May 2008 for reasons involving alleged corruption (let's just say he was very good at guessing who won at the races, but the [[FatherTed money was just resting in his account]]). His daughter, Cecilia, wrote the original novel for ''[[Literature/PSILoveYou PS I Love You]]'', which has been made into a feature film. She's also the co-creator of ''Series/SamanthaWho''.

Its '''military''' is relatively small, unlike many other neutral states, though it is still larger than a few similarly sized-states such as New Zealand (and in per-capita terms Ireland has a higher percentage of soldiers than Canada or Australia.) Since 1958, its main active function has been involvement in UN peacekeeping operations.

Since then, Ireland has had a history of '''emigration''', resulting in the massive [[TheIrishDiaspora Irish diaspora]] across the globe -- an estimated eighty million people are eligible for Irish passports by the grandparent rule. Most of them are concentrated in English-speaking countries, but just about everywhere has an Irish community. The emigration situation ironically reversed in the 1990s, when net migration was inward thanks to the Celtic Tiger. With the ten new countries in the EU in 2004, immigration increased further and coupled with high fertility rates, it makes Ireland's population one of the fastest growing in Europe. We should note that on account of the massive emigration in the 19th century, Ireland's current population is a lot lower than it should be--in the 18th and early 19th centuries, Dublin was the second-largest city of the British Empire and one of the ten largest cities in Europe. The emigration had a lasting effect, keeping Ireland's base population low and its agricultural emphasis strong as it entered the 20th century. Had Ireland been properly fed in the 19th century, it might well have been ''far'' more populous than it is (to give you an idea, if the island of Ireland was as densely populated as the island of Great Britain, it would have a population of about 25.5 million, rather than the population of about 6.7 million it actually has, making it the sixth-most-populous island in the world rather than the 19th).
