Dublin Finglas was a parliamentary constituency in Irelandmarker, which from 1977–1981 was represented in Dáil Éireann, the lower house of the Irish parliament or Oireachtas. It elected three deputies (Teachtaí Dála, commonly known in English as TDs) to the Dáil, using the Single Transferable Vote method of proportional representation (PR-STV).

It covered the Finglasmarker area of the city of Dublinmarker, together with small parts of Drumcondra and Glasnevinmarker.


The constituency was created in 1977, under the Electoral Act 1974, taking in much of the former Dublin North West constituency together with parts of Dublin South West, as part of the redistribution of constituencies (also known as the Tullymander) which attempted to secure the re-election of the outgoing Fine Gael/Labour government. The constituency was abolished in 1981 with much of it going into a revived Dublin North West constituency.

Its only election was notable for marking the debut in National politics of the current Taoiseach Bertie Ahern. Future Workers Party leader and Government minister Proinsias De Rossa also contested his first Dáil election.


The 1964 Act defined the constituency's boundaries as consisting of the following wards of the county borough of Dublin:
Drumcondra South C, Finglas East A, Finglas East B, Finglas East D, Finglas East E, Finglas East F, Finglas West A, Finglas West B, Finglas West C, Glasnevin B, Inns Quay A.
