CKAN is the Comprehensive Knowledge Archive Network, a non-profit registry of open data. CKAN prepares data and provides access to data in ways that make that data more discoverable and usable.
The government of Ireland makes some datasets available through CKAN, including data on transit; all TDs in the DÃ¡il Ã‰ireann; renewable energy; schools; port traffic; marriages; and more.
The CKAN API provides access to this data. The API is RESTful and returns responses in JSON and JSONP.
