If the Irish flag flies beside another flag in Ireland why does the Irish flag fly higher?

It is protocol for handling the Irish flag in Ireland. The same applies in many countries with national flags. An Irish flag flying in another country would not be flown highest, whereas the flag of that country might be. It is the national flag of Ireland, so it is of greater importance than any other flag in Ireland, and so it is flown higher than other flags.
