This is a list of the members of the 2nd Seanad √Čireann, the upper house of the Oireachtas (legislature) of Irelandmarker. These Senators were elected or appointed in March 1938 and served until the close of poll for the 3rd Seanad in July 1938.

Composition of the 2nd Seanad

The Free State Seanad was elected in stages and thus considered to be in permanent session. However, as a gesture of continuity with its Free State predecessor, the first Seanad elected after 1937 is numbered as the "Second Seanad". The Free State Senate, despite the occurrence of five senatorial elections before its abolition, is considered to have been a single 'Seanad' for the duration of its existence and is thus referred for that whole period as the "First Seanad".

There are a total of 60 seats in the Seanad. 43 Senators are elected by the Vocational Panels, 6 elected by the Universities and 11 are nominated by the Taoiseach.

The following table shows the composition by party when the 2nd Seanad first met on 27 April 1938.
