Borrowed from Irish.
- Title of a person who holds the office of President of Ireland.
- The head of state of Ireland; the Irish president.
- As a title, the word should always be capitalised.
- As a term for the political office, the word is sometimes found in lower case.
From uachtarán (“president; headmaster; landowner”).
- President (used as a title for the head of state of a republic)
Without further specification, an tUachtarán is usually interpreted to mean the President of Ireland, but the title applies to other presidents as well, e.g. an tUachtarán Obama, an tUachtarán Hollande, etc.
Forms with the definite article:
- uachtaránacht f (“presidency; authority, power”)
