Munster (Irish: an Mhumhain / Cúige Mumhan, pronounced [ənˈvuːnʲ], [ˌkuːɟəˈmuːn]) is one of the Provinces of Ireland situated in the south of Ireland. In Ancient Ireland, it was one of the fifths ruled by a "king of over-kings" Irish: rí ruirech. Following the Norman invasion of Ireland, the ancient kingdoms were shired into a number of counties for administrative and judicial purposes. In later centuries, local government legislation has seen further sub-division of the historic counties.
