The responsibility for the maintenance of law and order in the Republic of Ireland rests on the Garda Síochána. This is a national and unarmed police service. Its activities cover the whole state and its members are liable for service anywhere in the state.
The Primary responsibility of An Garda Síochána may be summarised briefly as follows:
Nurses look after people who are unwell or who, for some other reason (such as pregnancy or a learning disability) need special care. They provide care and advice for their clients, and they work in a variety of settings. They can also assist doctors and surgeons with their treatment.
Nurses care for people's emotional, psychological and physical needs. They aim to promote the health of the individual and population.

Takes a class in groups or individually for a range of subjects e.g. maths, geography, Irish, history and science as well as reading and writing. They may use a variety of resources including audio-visual and computers and may use a variety of teaching techniques.
Primary Teachers are responsible for organising projects, monitoring and recording the work and progress of pupils. They write reports and attend staff meetings and parents’/careers evenings. They are also involved in extra-curricular activities, school concerts and musicals and may additionally supervise the work of a special needs assistant.
Special Needs Assistants are recruited specifically to assist schools in providing the necessary non–teaching services to pupils with assessed educational needs. Their duties are assigned by the Principal acting on behalf of the Board of Management. Their work is supervised either by the Principal or another teacher as determined by the Principal. Those duties involve tasks of a non-teaching nature such as:
1. Preparation and tidying up of classrooms. 2. Assisting school children to board and alight from school buses. Where necessary travel as escort during school hours on school buses may be required. .........
