Thomas Finlay (Cumann Na N Gaedheal)

Thomas Aloysius Finlay (11 October 1893 – 22 November 1932) was an Irish Cumann na nGaedheal politician and Senior Counsel. In his short but varied career he had also been a District Justice and a senior official in the Department of Justice. He was elected to Dáil Éireann as a Cumann na nGaedheal Teachta Dála (TD) for the Dublin County constituency at the 1930 by-election caused by the death of Bryan Cooper of Cumann na nGaedheal. He was re-elected at the 1932 general election but died of typhoid the following November aged 39. His children included William Finlay (1921–2010), who was Governor of the Bank of Ireland, and Thomas Finlay, who is a former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Ireland.
