Dublin University (Parliament of Ireland constituency)
for the Irish House of Commons
|Replaced by||University of Dublin|
The university was not represented in the Parliament of the Commonwealth of England, Scotland and Ireland, under the Instrument of Government, after it was established in 1654. Following the restoration of the King in 1660 the Parliament of Ireland was re-established and the constituency again returned two members of parliament. See First Protectorate Parliament for the list of Irish constituencies during the Protectorate. In the Patriot Parliament of 1689 summoned by King James II, Dublin University was represented with two members.
