Constituencies of Ireland, 1923 - 1937

 1921 - 1923                                                                                                                     1937 - 1948

The first general election after the civil war saw new constituencies created and some borders changed. With the six counties of Northern Ireland now a seperate jurisdiction, the new Irish Free State now had just 30 constituencies, but despite this, the number of seats in Dáil Éireann grew from 128 to 153. As was the case with the previous constituencies, some contained a large number of seats - the largest being Galway with 9.

These constituencies served for 14 years until they were replaced for the 1937 general election, which coincided with the referendum on de Valera's new Irish constitution.
