Barry Egan (politician)
Barry M Egan (died 3 March 1954) was an Irish politician. He was first elected to Dáil Éireann as a Cumann na nGaedheal Teachta Dála (TD) for the Cork Borough constituency at the June 1927 general election. He was re-elected at the September 1927 general election but he did not contest the 1932 general election. He stood again at the 1933 general election but lost his seat as Fianna Fáil surged into power.
Egan was managing director of the family firm of silversmiths, William Egan & Sons. His Cork shop was burned out by the Black and Tans during the War of Independence. From July to September 1922, when Cork was a closed city, Egan was responsible for producing Cork republican silver, for which he devised his own hallmark.
