Members of the Sixth Dáil - Thomas Aloysius Finlay

Thomas Aloysius Finlay (11 October 1893 – 22 November 1932) was an Irish Cumann na nGaedheal politician and Senior Counsel. In his short but varied career he had also been a District Justice and a senior official in the Department of Justice. He was elected to Dáil Éireann as a Cumann na nGaedheal Teachta Dála (TD) for the Dublin County constituency at the 1930 by-election caused by the death of Bryan Cooper of Cumann na nGaedheal. He was re-elected at the 1932 general election but died of typhoid the following November aged 39. Two of his children were: William (1921–2010) who was Governor of the Bank of Ireland while Thomas Finlay is a former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Ireland.
