State Agencies of the Republic of Ireland

State Agencies in Ireland are public sector bodies of the state that have a statutory obligation to perform specific tasks on behalf of the Government of Ireland. Such agencies are considered "arm's length" bodies as they are largely isolated from the workings of central government. The state agencies are distinct and separate from the civil service. The Department of Public Expenditure and Reform refers to them as Non-Commercial State Agencies. As of Q3, 2016 approximately 12,616 public sector workers are employed in NCSA's.[1]
