General Election of 14 December 1918
The results shown here are for the Westminster Constituencies in Ireland at the General Election to the House of Commons in 1918. The First Dáil was formed from the Sinn Féin candidates returned at that election. More information on this will be added later.
Parliamentary Constituencies in the United Kingdom are one of three types - Borough (mainly urban - shown in bold below), County (mainly rural), or Univeristy (abolished in 1950 - shown in italics below). Different rules apply in different types of constituencies - for example regarding electoral expenses. All the constituencies shown below returned a single member, except for Cork and Dublin University (both returned two members - although still under the "first past the post" system).
There were 103 Westminster constituencies in Ireland, returning 105 members to the UK parliament. Wikipedia has a summary table of the Irish constituencies and members. Some candidates won in more than one constituency, so there were fewer members available for the 1st Dáil than the 73 constituencies returning Sinn Féin MPs.
At this election, to avoid the forfeit of the £100 deposit, a candidate required one eighth (12.5%) of the votes cast.
