Members of the Sixth Dáil - Denis Allen

Denis Allen (2 January 1896 – 29 March 1961) was an Irish Fianna Fáil party and long-serving Teachta Dála (TD) for the Wexford constituency.

Allen was an unsuccessful candidate at the June 1927 general election, but later that year in the September 1927 general election he was elected to the 6th Dáil. He was re-elected at the 1932 general election, but lost his seat at the 1933 general election.

He returned to the 8th Dáil in a by-election on 17 August 1936, following the death of the Cumann na nGaedheal TD Osmond Esmonde, and returned at each successive election until he retired from politics in 1961.
