- Official Seal of the President of Ireland
The Official Seal of the President of Ireland ( _ga. Séala Oifigiúil Uachtarán na hÉireann) was presented to the first
President of Ireland, Douglas Hydeand every subsequent president, to be affixed to every "...order, commission, warrant, or other instrument..."1 which the president has witnessed. A serving president has custody of the official seal, but if his or her powers are being carried out by the Presidential Commission, then that body has custody of the official seal.
The official seal has the word "
Éire" in Gaelic script, and uses the modified harp that is used as the official state symbol on coins and documents of Ireland. The official seal is similar to the design of the Great Seal of the Irish Free Statewhich was itself under the custody of the Governor-General of the Irish Free State.
The seal is currently used by the current President,
