The D�il Committee of Public Accounts and the Joint Committee on Commercial State-sponsored Bodies are concerned with the functions of Parliament relating to public spending and the monitoring of State-sponsored bodies.

The D�il Select Committees on Social Affairs, Finance and General Affairs, Enterprise and Economic Strategy, Legislation and Security and the Joint Committee on Foreign Affairs deal with some of the functions of the Oireachtas in relation to legislation.

Committees dealing with specialised subjects include the Joint Committee on Women's Rights and An Comhchoiste don Ghaeilge (Joint Committee on the Irish language).
