January 2019 marks the centenary of the first public sitting of Dáil Éireann..The Irish general election on 14 December 1918 heralded a landslide victory for Sinn Féin and the collapse of the Irish Parliamentary Party (IPP). Standing on an abstentionist platform, the party secured 73 of the 105 Irish seats in Westminster. The Sinn Féin MPs followed through on a pledge to establish a revolutionary unicameral parliament which they called Dáil Éireann. All Irish MPs were invited to attend.

At the first public meeting of the Dáil in the Round Room of Dublin’s Mansion House on 21 January 1919, 29 Members were recorded as ‘I láthair’ (present), although two, Michael Collins and Harry Boland, were incorrectly recorded to conceal their efforts to organise Éamon de Valera’s escape from Lincoln Gaol. Five Sinn Féin Members, along with 32 invited Members (26 unionists and six IPP MPs) were recorded ‘as láthair’ (absent). Of the remaining Members, 34 were recorded as ‘fé ghlas ag Gallaibh’ (imprisoned by the foreigners) and three as ‘ar díbirt ag Gallaibh’ (banished by the foreigners).

“On the weekend beforehand, we intend to open Leinster House for some public engagement activities and tours of the Houses. On Monday 21 January 2019 there will be a ceremonial sitting in the Round Room of the Mansion House.  Following this, we are planning a TED-Ed Club talk for students on Tuesday 22 January, again in the Round Room,” Dignam outlines.

 

Under the tagline Dáil 100, Derek Dignam and his team have been working to develop a programme of events for the centenary of the first public sitting of Dáil Éireann. The days either side of 21 January 2019 will encompass the three core events of this calendar.

Significance During a two-hour sitting in January 1919, Members adopted a Dáil Constitution (in Irish alone) and adopted the Democratic Programme which outlined socio-economic principles. A Declaration of Independence was then read, first in Irish, then in French and, finally, in English. The Declaration stated: “We ordain that the elected Representatives of the Irish people alone have power to make laws binding on the people of Ireland, and that the Irish Parliament is the only Parliament to which that people will give its allegiance.” The Dáil also delivered a Message to the Free Nations of the World urging them to “support the Irish Republic by recognising Ireland’s national status and her right to its vindication at the Peace Congress”.

That same day, near Soloheadbeg in County Tipperary, the Irish Volunteers’ 3rd Tipperary Brigade ambushed a Royal Irish Constabulary escort and killed two officers. This event came to be regarded as the opening engagement of the War of Independence. Despite its prohibition in September that year, the Dáil’s clandestine meetings continued intermittently.
