Though the island of Ireland was partitioned by the Government of Ireland Act, 1920 into two states now known as the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, all major Irish religions are organised on an all-island basis. Within the Republic of Ireland, the senior bishop in both the Catholic and Church of Ireland faiths is the Archbishop of Dublin who is known as the Primate of Ireland.
