The Irish Political Speech Database in an English language database which contains recordings of politicians in a range of settings. The database spans 7 years (2006-2012) and contains speech from a single speaker.

Four speech settings are included in the database: parliamentary discussions; election rallies; interviews; and inter-party conferences. Recordings are primarily collected from online sources such as YouTube and the digital archives of the Irish Parliament. This introduces a large variability, both in the format and resolution of recordings, and in the range of noise and reverberation conditions encountered. However, it also ensures that all expressions are authentic.
