    This paper addresses the question of how Ireland entered European Monetary regime and sustained its membership since 1979. In contrast Britain, with which Ireland had been engaged in a de facto currency union over a century, chose to stay outside. This paper argues that strong prime ministerial power that characterized the politics of Ireland was the political foundation of economic stabilization, which in turn accounted for Ireland's continuous participation in European monetary regime.
