 Irish (UK) general election, 1918 - Wiki Ireland
The Irish general election of 1918 was that part of the 1918 United Kingdom general election that took place in Ireland.
Indeed the 1918 general election has become a potent symbol for militant republicans who have argued that the elections conferred legitimacy both on the anti-Treaty faction in the Irish Civil War of 1922–1923 and on the violent campaigns of later groups such as the Provisional IRA that erupted many decades later.
Although the 1918 general election was the last held throughout the whole of Ireland on a single day, in every election held since 1921 candidates advocating violent resistance to the partition of Ireland have fallen far short of winning a majority in either part of Ireland.

 The CPI: A Critical History
The organisational division of Irish Stalinism along the lines of the border coupled with its liquidation in the 26 Counties, seems to have been (indeed it must have been even for the Stalinites) designed as a temporary measure to be reversed at the end of the Second World War.
Organisationally, the Irish Stalinite groups would tend, in the revived third International to act as a satellite of the british organisation which was, in turn, in that body, subordinate to its French comrades.
The relations between the English rulers and the Irish rulers have been, throughout imperialist relations, consequently, the history of the 800 years of Anglo-Irish conflict – with the examples of every variety of imperialist aggression and of every form of resistance thereto – supplies an invaluable introduction to the critical study of Imperialism in general.
