In addition, according to Irish republican theory 52 members elected from 9 geographic constituencies and the Queen's University of Belfast in Northern Ireland were also entitled to sit in the 2nd Dáil. Six Sinn Féin candidates were elected, 5 of whom had also been returned in the other part of Ireland. 40 Ulster Unionist and 5 Nationalist candidates (representing a remnant of the old Irish Parliamentary Party which had survived in Northern Ireland) were elected. One of the latter won two seats, making a total of six victories. These 45 all refused to attend Dáil Éireann.
