This is a list of the members who were elected to the 4th Dáil Éireann, the lower house of the Oireachtas (legislature) of the Irish Free State. These TDs (Members of Parliament) were elected at the 1923 general election on 27 August 1923 and met on 19 September 1923. The 4th Dáil was dissolved by Governor-General Timothy Michael Healy, at the request of the President of the Executive Council W. T. Cosgrave on 23 May 1927. Although Cumann na nGaedheal did not have a majority it was able to govern due to the absence of Republicans (Anti-Treaty Sinn Féin) who refused to attend. The 4th Dáil lasted 1,382 days.
