Category for Ceann Comhairle (chair) (plural: Cinn Chomhairle) of Dáil Éireann

For Speakers of the Parliament of Ireland, which existed from medieval times until the Act of Union 1800, see Category:Speakers of the pre-1801 Parliament of Ireland

Since the 1937 Constitution, the Ceann Comhairle has been an ex officio member of the Council of State, beginning with Frank Fahy. The earlier presiding officers never served on the Council of State: i.e. those of the Revolutionary Dáil (1919–22: Cathal Brugha, George Noble Plunkett, Eoin MacNeill, and Michael Hayes) and the Free State Dáil (1922–36: Hayes again, before Fahy).
