1902 Dublin Corporation election

An election to Dublin Corporation took place in March 1902 as part of that year's Irish local elections. The election saw a small decline in Labour representation, whilst the Nationalists continued their dominance of the council.[1]

Results by ward.

Since the last election the rifts between the United Irish League and the Irish National League had been healed, with the two groups reuniting.
