Irish Culture

Other Considerations

  • Smoking in enclosed public places is illegal. If you wish to smoke, avoid lighting your cigarette indoors and only smoke in designated areas.
  • The primary focus of this cultural profile is the Republic of Ireland, rather than Northern Ireland (a region part of Great Britain). The two areas have been separated from one another for almost 100 years, which began with the Irish War of Independence (1919-1921). The near-100 years of separation have resulted in diverging patterns of national cultural development, which is evident through language, dialect, accent, religion, politics, sport and music.
