This chapter examines the domestic polity of Ireland and the mediating forces to Europeanisation. It outlines the key elements of Irish political and social culture and analyses the way in which these factors have moderated the Europeanisation process. The analysis reveals that the effects of Europeanisation have been filtered by Ireland's complex history, distinctive political culture, social norms, nationalistic penchants and strongly centralised political-administrative structure as well as its geographical and population size.
