He was re-elected as a pro-Treaty Sinn Féin TD at the 1922 general election but lost his seat at the 1923 general election.[2] He was re-elected as a Cumann na nGaedheal TD for the Waterford constituency at the June 1927 and September 1927 general elections. He lost his seat at the 1932 general election. He served as Mayor of Waterford from 1920 to 1926.
