  Executive Council of the Irish Free State - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Executive Council (Irish: Ard-Chomhairle) was the cabinet and de facto executive branch of government of the 1922-1937 Irish Free State.
The President of the Executive was appointed by the Governor-General after being nominated by Dáil Éireann, the lower house of the Oireachtas (parliament), and the remaining cabinet ministers were nominated by the President.
It meant that if the Executive Council resigned after being defeated, and the Dáil could not agree on a new Council, a Catch-22 situation might be created, in which the inability of the Dáil to chose a cabinet could not be resolved by the holding of a general election.

 President of the Executive Council of the Irish Free State - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The President of the Executive Council (Irish: Uachtaráin na hArd-Chomhairle) was the head of government or prime minister of the 1922-1937 Irish Free State, and the leader of the Executive Council (cabinet).
Although the President of the Executive Council was theoretically appointed by the Governor General, the Governor General was bound by constitutional convention to appoint the individual nominated by the Dáil.
For the same reason, although notionally he exercised the executive authority of the state, in practice it was the President of the Executive Council rather than the Governor-General who was the Free State's political leader.

Timothy Michael Healy, KC (17 May 1855-26 March 1931) was one of the most brilliant and most controversial of Irish politicians, with a career that spanned the period from Charles Stewart Parnell's leadership of the Irish Parliamentary Party[?] in the 1880s to the foundation of the Irish Free State in 1922.
Initially the Irish government under W. Cosgrave wished for Healy to reside in a new small residence, but when facing death threats from the IRA, as a temporary measure he was moved into the Viceregal Lodge, the former 'out of season' residence of the Lord Lieutenant, the former representative of the Crown before 1922.
Though Healy seemed to believe that he had been awarded the governor-generalship for life, the Executive Council of the Irish Free State[?] decided in 1927 that the term of office of governors-general would be five years.
