Technically speaking it does. Ireland can refer to the island of Ireland, which has 32 counties or the country known as Éire or the Republic of Ireland, which has 26 counties. As to whether the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland will ever be re-united, nobody can be sure. That will depend on the people of Ireland, in particular the people of Northern Ireland.

Ireland's status has changed regularly during its period as a British colony. Dublin was first identified as being a capital city in 1171 and has been a capital ever since then. As Ireland has changed and become different things, Dublin remained the capital. The Republic of Ireland came into being under the 1948 Irish constitution, which came into being on the 18th of April 1949, so it can be said that from then it has been the capital of the Republic of Ireland.
