The President of Ireland (Irish: Uachtarn na hireann [ˈuəxt̪ˠəɾˠɑːn̪ˠ n̪ˠə ˈheːɾʲən̪ˠ]) is the head of state of Ireland. The President is usually directly elected by the people for seven years, and can be elected for a maximum of two terms.[2] The presidency is largely a ceremonial office, but the President does exercise certain limited powers with absolute discretion. The President's official residence is ras an Uachtarin in Dublin. The office was established by the Constitution of Ireland in 1937, and became internationally recognised as head of state in 1949 following the coming into force of the Republic of Ireland Act.
