Members of the Fifth Dáil - Frank Carney

Frank Carney (25 April 1896 – 19 October 1932) was an Irishman who fought in the British Army in the World War I before joining the Irish Republican Army (IRA). He fought in the Irish War of Independence and the Civil War before being elected to Dáil Éireann as a Fianna Fáil Teachta Dála (TD).

A former chief Supplies Officer of the National Army, he won his seat in the Dáil on his first attempt, when he was elected for the Donegal constituency at the June 1927 general election. He was re-elected at the September 1927 and 1932 general elections, but died in office later that year, aged 36. No by-election was held for his seat, which remained vacant until the next general election in January 1933.
