Civil War

People that were against this treaty, notably the Republicans, objected the treaty as it retained constitutional links between the United Kingdom and Ireland. This meant that the six counties of Northern Ireland would not be included in the Free State. Constance fought on the side of the Republicans - those who were unhappy with the Treaty - until the war ended in May 1923.

Another election was held just after the Civil War ended in August 1923. Constance won a seat but she and the other Sinn Féin deputies refused to take their seats. Constance was again sentenced to imprisonment, this time for her Republican activities. When Fianna Fáil was founded in 1927 she joined and retained her seat in the next election.
