Welcome to the Competition Authority website:

The Competition Authority is the State body responsible for enforcing Irish and European competition law in Ireland. Competition benefits everyone: consumers, businesses and the economy as a whole.

Our mission is “to ensure that markets work well for Irish consumers, business and the economy". We do this by taking action against anti-competitive practices, such as price-fixing; blocking anti-competitive business mergers; and informing Government, public authorities, businesses and the wider public about competition issues.
