Griffith and Collins both down as being leader at the same time?[edit]

Can anyone clear this up? Can we clarify who was leader when as both are down as leader at the same time at the moment. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gaelmise (talkcontribs) 18:04, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

It is already clarified in a note which is the part of the list. I'll quote it here:
From January to August 1922 there were two administrations operating in parallel, the Provisional Government and the Ministry of the Irish Republic, and each cabinet had an overlapping membership. Thus, during this time, there were two heads of government, Arthur Griffith, as President of the Republic, and Michael Collins as Chairman of the Provisional Government of Southern Ireland. This anomalous situation came about because the British Government would only recognise the parliament that it had established through the Government of Ireland Act, so Sinn Féin participated in the charade to move matters along. The dual leadership came to an end when W. T. Cosgrave assumed both offices on the deaths of Griffith, on 12 August 1922, and Collins, on 22 August, and merged the two parallel administrations.
It is a pretty much good explanation and easy to understand, IMHO. --Sundostund (talk) 20:47, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Post-1998 references to Northern Ireland have strangely only recognised the First Minister, rather than the reality that the post is a fused position "Office of the First and deputy First Minister". As such, references to First Ministers should also be accompanied by references to the deputy First Minister[edit]

See, for example, McGarry and O'Leary, 2004, p 264. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:50, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
