The First Dail
The First D�il (An Ch�ad D�il) was D�il �ireann as it convened from 1919-1921. In 1919 candidates who had been elected in the Westminster elections of 1918 refused to recognise the Parliament of the United Kingdom and instead assembled as a unicameral, revolutionary parliament called “D�il �ireann”.
The establishment of the First D�il occurred on the same day as the outbreak of the Irish War of Independence. After elections in 1921 the First D�il was succeeded by the Second D�il of 1921-1922.
