A picture of The Fianna Fail party members elected in the June 1927 General Election. It’s from a 1993 publication “Ceiliúradh an 60ú Árd Fheis” which was a special programme for the party’s 60th Ard Fheis.
Given the centenary of the Easter Rising, it’s interesting to note that among those elected for Fianna Fail in this June 1927 Election, were many associated with the Rising. Those associated with the rising included Seán Lemass, Kathleen Clarke, James Ryan, Gerald Boland, Sean T O’Kelly,Seán MacEntee, Richard Buckley, Patrick Belton, Éamon de Valera, Constance Markievicz, Paddy Smith and Thomas Derrig.

I’ve also uploaded the image in pdf here
