Ireland, officially the Republic of Ireland (Irish: Poblacht na hÉireann), is a country in Europe. Politically, fifth-sixths of the island of Ireland are occupied by the Republic of Ireland, while the remainder in the northeast, called Northern Ireland, is part of the United Kingdom (UK). The population of the Republic of Ireland is close to 4.6 million. Its capital and largest city is Dublin. Its official languages are Irish (Gaelic) and English, of which the latter is predominantly used today. Ireland is governed by a parliamentary republic, with the President as the head of state and the Taoiseach as the head of government. It is also a member of the European Union.
Ireland gained independence from the UK in 1922 after a war which resulted in the Anglo-Irish Treaty, with Northern Ireland exercising an option to remain in the UK. Ireland became a fully independent republic in 1949. It is now a highly developed country and is one of the richest countries in the world in terms of gross domestic product per capita.

As in all of Europe, spanking children has decreased a lot in Ireland in the 20th century. Still, there is a particular high interest in the subject of spanking today, as revealed by Google Trends.
