An Tánaiste, Leo Varadkar, TD, today launched the Institute of Public Administration’s (IPA) ‘Ireland – A Directory 2021’, Ireland's most comprehensive directory and database on public and private organisations.

Now in its 55th year, the Tánaiste was presented with a copy of the IPA directory and app at Government Buildings in Dublin.  The directory is Ireland’s most venerable and comprehensive directory of the workings of the State. Initially published the same year Ireland entered the Eurovision Song Contest for the very first time, it is amongst the longest-surviving annual publications in the country. The directory lists approximately 9,000 organisations in the latest edition, including government departments, local authorities, voluntary agencies, trade and professional organisations, merchant banks, advertising agencies, third-level institutions, independent radio stations, the media and EU institutions.

The directory and app hold valuable information for those in public service, business or the media. It is an exhaustive directory of contact details and the functions of everyone you need to know in the Irish public, private, voluntary and community sectors.  Whether you are in business, the media, the public sector, academia or a curious member of the public that wants to be informed, ‘Ireland – A Directory 2021’ is a critical resource which continues to ease and enhance the work of professionals in Ireland every day. Today’s launch by the Tánaiste is another significant milestone for the IPA and proves the directory’s unwavering utility and appeal.

‘Ireland – A Directory 2021’ retails at €70 and is available in all good bookshops and to order at, with free delivery within Ireland.
