 Dáil Éireann
The first Dáil was constituted in Dublin on January 21, 1919, after the republican Sinn Féin movement had won 73 of Ireland's 105 seats in the British House of Commons in the previous month's general election.
Only 27 members were present at the Dáil's first session to adopt the Declaration of Independence of the Irish Republic: many of the other Sinn Féiners were in prison.
Though technically a different assembly from the earlier Dála (plural in Gaelic for Dáils), it retained the name and was treated as a linear successor, as indeed is the current Dáil, created in the 1937 constitution, even though all three operated under different constitutional structures and rules from each other.

FIRST WOMAN TD The first Dáil Éireann was not officially constituted as such but was the complement of Sinn Féin MPs returned at the British election of 1918 who met secretly to declare themselves the first parliament of an independent Ireland.
First elected as an Independent, she joined Labour in 1976 and twice ran for the Dáil but left the party to protest its role in negotiating the 1985 Anglo-Irish Agreement without consulting Ulster Unionists.
Constance Markievicz, both the UK's first woman MP and Ireland's first TD, was also the first woman minister in western Europe, appointed at a time when many countries had not yet given women the franchise.

 From Irish Political Review - Garrett FitzGerald And A Pack Of Misbegotten Lies
And an amendment which he first proposed, and then opposed in the half-hearted way so characteristic of The Wise, was voted into that Constitution to protect the lives so to speak of the not yet born.
First of all, John O'Mahony was elected to Dáil Éireann in 1921 for the constituency of Fermanagh/Tyrone, just as Collins was elected for the constituency of Armagh.
Clearly for Garrett the Good the first legitimate parliament of the Irish state (of which he was once Taoiseach) was the first parliament legitimised by the 'Treaty' the British imposed under the threat of 'immediate and terrible war'.

 Ireland's OWN: History   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-25)
Successive anniversaries of the First Dáil Éireann have been officially ignored by the government of the 26 Counties, which claims its authority and whose parliament takes its name from the first freely elected, 32-County Irish assembly which met in the Mansion House, Dublin, on 21 January 1919.
On 14 December 1918, for the first time in Irish history, all the people of Ireland were being asked to choose between an Irish republic as expressed in the Sinn Féin manifesto or to support the policies of the Irish Parliamentary Party; which in effect meant the continuing domination of Ireland by Britain.
Dáil Éireann, the first freely elected parliament of a 32-County Irish republic and the parliament to which Irish republicans still give allegiance, met for the first time on 21 January 1919, 82 years ago this week.

 Valera - de valera
He was president of the Council of the League on his first appearance at Geneva in 1932 and, in a speech that made a worldwide impression, appealed for genuine adherence by its members to the principles of the Covenant of the league.
First, though the 1922 constitution was supposed to require amendment through public plebiscite eight years after its passage, the Free State government under W.T. Cosgrave had amended that period to 16 years, meaning that until 1938 the Free State constitution could be amended by the simple passage of a Constitutional Amendment Act through the Oireachtas.
In 1948 de Valera was ousted from power by the first Inter-Party Government, with John A. Costello as Taoiseach.

 SAOIRSE Irish Freedom February 1999
Republican Sinn Féin addresses you on the 80th Anniversary of the First Dáil Éireann and the adoption and promulgation of the Declaration of Independence by that duly elected All-Ireland parliament.
“The First Dáil Éireann was the democratically elected Parliament of all Ireland and no body which represents only 26 of the 32 counties, and from whose election one-third of the people of Ireland are excluded, can rightfully claim to be Dáil Éireann or the successor of Dáil Éireann.
The main thrust of Kelleher’s argument, an argument he has advanced all of his life, from the Curragh internment camp in the ’40s through to the Connolly Association with C Desmond Greaves, who seems to have been a major influence on him, is that the major cause of division in Ireland is not sectarian.

at December 5, 2004 06:44 PM The Dail would be in breech of international law to do this, by virtue of the Belfast Agreement, therefore it is not up to the Dail but the people of Northern Ireland.
I believe that by being represented in the Dail I will be better able to raise matters of concern to me than having an MP who has nowhere to sit.
any invites to the dail, and lets remember they are being invited, not able to be there as of right, will be on the basis of observation and being able to address.

The Volunteers, an autonomous body with its own Executive, gave allegiance to this Dail and could thenceforth claim to be the army of a lawfully constituted Government elected by the people.
