Abstract

We present a database of parliamentary debates that contains the complete record of parliamentary speeches from Dail Eireann, the lower house and principal chamber of the Irish parliament, from 1919 to 2013. In addition, the database contains background information on all TDs (Teachta Dala, members of parliament), such as their party affiliations, constituencies and office positions. The current version of the database includes close to 4.5 million speeches from 1,178 TDs. In addition, we also present three applications in which we make use of the new data.
