From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Philip Cosgrave (died 22 October 1923) was an Irish Cumann na nGaedhael party politician who was a Teachta D√°la (TD) in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th D√°la.

He was first elected in the 1921 general election for Dublin South West, and after that constituency's abolition for the 1923 general election he was re-elected for the new Dublin South constituency. Cosgrave's death only eight weeks after winning his seat in the 4th D√°il triggered a by-election for his seat. It was held on 12 March 1924 and won by the Cumann na nGaedhael candidate, James O'Mara.[1]

His brother, W. T. Cosgrave, was President of the Executive Council (Prime Minister) of the Irish Free State and his nephew, Liam Cosgrave was Taoiseach from 1973 to 1977.
