Description:
St Michan's, a division of Dublin, was a UK parliamentary constituency in Ireland. It returned one Member of Parliament (MP) to the British House of Commons 1918–1922.

Prior to the 1918 general election, the city was divided into four constituencies: the Dublin College Green, Dublin Harbour, Dublin St Patrick's and Dublin St Stephen's Green constituencies. In 1918, the city was allocated seven seats: St Michan's, the existing four constituencies, Dublin Clontarf and Dublin St James's.

From the dissolution of 1922, the area was no longer represented in the UK Parliament.

Boundaries

This constituency was entitled to send a member to the United Kingdom House of Commons. Sinn Féin used the election of 1918 to elect members of the Irish Republic's First Dáil. In Republican theory every MP elected in Ireland was entitled to become a Teachta Dála (known in English as a Deputy) in the Dáil, although only the Sinn Féin members participated.

In 1921 Dublin was divided into three multi-member constituencies, for elections to the House of Commons of Southern Ireland. Sinn Féin used them to elect Deputies to the Second Dáil.

Politics

Dublin St Michan's was a constituency which gave Sinn Féin about two-thirds of its votes.

In common with other Sinn Féiners elected in 1918, Michael Staines MP did not take his seat at Westminster but instead participated in the revolutionary Dáil Éireann.
