These are the 1930 Local Election Results for 5 of the 6 wards for Dublin City Council. (Missing Area No 1)
A few things of note. Jim Larkin elected for the Irish Workers League and Jim Larkin Junior elected for the Revolutionary Workers League. Another candidate was elected for the Labour—Municipal Workers group which (I think) was a left wing breakaway from Labour.
We also have a Commercial Register where the City’s businessmen (and women) get to vote in a number of Councillors themselves.

Missed this at the time. Esther McGregor in No. 4 Area seems to be listed as Business Men’s Association yet she must have been the communist leader of the Dublin tenants’ association? Her son Liam (Bill) died on the Ebro the day before the IBs were pulled out.
