Frank Carney (25 April 1896 – 19 October 1932) was an Irishman who fought in the British Army in World War I before joining the Irish Republican Army (IRA).[1] He fought in the Irish War of Independence and the Civil War before being elected to Dáil Éireann as a Fianna Fáil Teachta Dála (TD).

A former chief Supplies Officer of the National Army,[1] he won his seat in the Dáil on his first attempt, when he was elected for the Donegal constituency at the June 1927 general election. He was re-elected at the September 1927 and 1932 general elections, but died following ill-health later that year,[2] aged 36.[3] No by-election was held for his seat, which remained vacant until the next general election in January 1933.
