Members of the Fifth Dáil - Vincent Rice
Vincent Rice (died 1955) was an Irish politician and lawyer. Rice was first elected to Dáil Éireann as a National League Party Teachta Dála (TD) for the Dublin South constituency at the June 1927 general election. He lost his seat at the September 1927 general election but was elected as a Cumann na nGaedheal TD for the Dublin North constituency at a by-election on 3 April 1928 caused by the disqualification of James Larkin due to bankruptcy. He lost his seat again at the 1932 general election but was re-elected at the 1933 general election. He stood as a Fine Gael candidate at the 1937 general election but did not retain his seat. He also stood unsuccessfully as an independent candidate at the 1943 general election.
