Prior to the 1885 general election, the city was the undivided two member Dublin City constituency. In 1885, Dublin was divided into four constituencies: the St Stephen's Green, Dublin College Green, Dublin Harbour and Dublin St Patrick's constituencies.
From the dissolution of 1922, the area was no longer represented in the UK Parliament.
This constituency comprised part of the city of Dublin.
Dublin St Stephen's Green gave Sinn Féin almost two-thirds of its votes. The minority was fairly evenly divided between the Irish Parliamentary Party and the Unionists.
In common with other Sinn Féiners, elected in 1918, the Deputy did not take his seat at Westminster but instead participated in the revolutionary Dáil Éireann.
