Connacht-Ulster is one of Ireland's four regional constituencies[?] for elections to the European Parliament. It returns three Members of the European Parliament[?] (MEPs).

Duke of Connaught was a British royal title given to a son of the British monarch. The last British prince awarded the title was Arthur, Duke of Connaught[?], (1850-1942), son of Queen Victoria. As Ireland is no longer part of the United Kingdom, it is not expected that the title will be awarded again.
