From the Wikipedia article on Patrick J. Reynolds, Fine Gael TD for Roscommon 1961-69 and for Roscommon-Leitrim 1973-77:
"Reynolds was born in Killellan, County Leitrim in 1920. His father Patrick Reynolds was elected as a Cumann na nGaedheal Teachta Dála (TD) for Leitrim–Sligo at the September 1927 general election, but was fatally shot during the 1932 general election campaign. The election was postponed, and his mother Mary won the seat, serving the Dáil for 29 years."
Assuming the writer or the source is not mistaken, I'm a little surprised to see no mention of the postponement in this article. Would those with specialist knowledge care to comment? Harfarhs (talk) 22:46, 9 October 2015 (UTC)
True, but I think it would be worthwhile someone telling the story (briefly) in this article too. Even a delay of some weeks in one constituency is an exceptional occurrence, and would affect such matters as how many TDs attend the commencement of the new Dáil.
