Members of the Fourth Dáil - Samuel Holt

Samuel Edward Holt (1887 – 18 April 1929) was an Irish politician. He was first elected to Dáil Éireann as a Sinn Féin Teachta Dála (TD) for the Leitrim–Sligo constituency at the 1925 by-election caused by the resignation of Thomas Carter of Cumann na nGaedheal. He was re-elected at the June 1927 and September 1927 general elections as a Fianna Fáil TD. He died during the 6th Dáil in 1929. The by-election caused by his death was held on 7 June 1929 and was won by Seán Mac Eoin of Cumann na nGaedhael.

  1. Samuel Holt was my grandfather whom I never met because he died a young man - he picked up typhoid nursing his daughter in Dublin while attending the Dail. Devalera carried his coffin to the grave in Carrick on Shannon. There is a great human untold story here.
