The Senate of Southern Ireland assembled there in June 1921.

The Senate of Southern Ireland (1921–1922) was the upper house of the Parliament of Southern Ireland theoretically established by the 1920 Government of Ireland Act. The Senate convened in 1921 but was boycotted by Irish nationalists. Only fifteen members attended its first meeting.

Contents

Composition

The Government of Ireland Act provided for a Senate of 61:

  • The Lord Chancellor of Ireland (who would be chairman).
  • Fifteen Peers of the Realm resident in Southern Ireland (elected by a constituency of all Southern Ireland peers).[1]
  • Eight privy councillors (elected by all members of the Privy Council of Southern Ireland).
  • Two representatives of the Church of Ireland.
  • Two representatives of the Catholic Church.
  • Fourteen individuals nominated by the Lord Lieutenant.
  • Two individuals nominated by the Lord Lieutenant upon consultation with the labour movement.
  • Seventeen individuals elected by members of the county councils (divided into a number of geographical constituencies).

In practice, however, only forty senators were selected, as the labour movement, the Catholic Church and the county councils (controlled by Sinn Féin) refused to cooperate.

Abolition

On 27 May 1922 (some months before the establishment of the Irish Free State) Lord Fitzalan, the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, in accordance with the Irish Free State (Agreement) Act 1922 formally dissolved the Parliament of Southern Ireland and by proclamation called “a Parliament to be known as and styled the Provisional Parliament”.[2] From that date, the Senate of Southern Ireland ceased to exist.

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
