Republic of Ireland Act 1948

Post by jancancook on Sun Feb 20, 2011 2:53 am

The Republic of Ireland Act 1948 is an Act of the Irish Parliament (Oireachtas) which declared that the state, Ireland, is a republic and that the President of Ireland has executive authority of any executive function of the state or in the external relations of the state. It repealed the External Relations Act of 1936, which had declared that George VI of the United Kingdom and his successors should exercise that authority. This meant the State ceased to be a Dominion of the Crown.

It declares that the description of the state is the Republic of Ireland (or Poblacht na hÉireann in Irish) and that the president, with support of the government, will have absolute executive power in the state. It was signed by the President of Ireland on 21 December 1948 and came into force on 18 April 1949.[1]
