The Prime Minister, officially the Prime Minister of Connemara, was the head of government of the Province of Connemara twice in the history of Connemara, and was subordinate to the Governor of Connemara, the chief representative of the President of the Republic in Connemara. The Prime Minister was selected by the Legislative Assembly, and appointed by the Governor of Connemara.


First creation

the position of prime minister was created by Thomas Jacobs to help make Connemara province a proper autonomous province, and the first Prime Minister of Connemara was Liam David King, 1st Baron David King, who was ineffective at his job, and a month or two later, he and President Jacobs argued, and then Baron David King resigned, President Jacobs abolished the position, giving the powers to the Governor General of Connemara, Evan O’Neill , who’s position became the High Commissioner for Connemara,


The position was recreated on 19 October 2021, for Evan O’Neill, who’s position of High Commissioner was abolished and he was made Prime Minister of Connemara, Tadhg O’Regan was made Governor of Connemara, who became the President’s representative in Connemara.

Suspension of the Prime Minister’s powers

After finding out O’Neill not being so fond politically of Thomas Jacobs, Jacobs decided on, 3 November 2021, as part of the Reforms of November 2021, he would use the reserve powers in his capacity as President to suspend the executive and legislature for 6 months with Tadhg O’Regan appointed Viceroy to run the Province. Evan was granted the powers back on 5 November 2021.
