Abstract: Contrary to popular belief there is no sovereign state called the 'Republic of Ireland'. The Irish Constitution of 1937 makes clear that the name of the state in the English language is simply 'Ireland'. Although the state has officially described itself as a republic since 1949, the official name remained unchanged. This popular misconception can be partly attributed to the national football team, whose zeal for republican philosophy ensures that the word 'Republic' appears unnecessarily in its title.
