The Minister for Economic Affairs was the name of a government department in the Government of the Irish Republic, the self-declared state which was established in 1919 by Dáil Éireann, the extra-legal parliamentary assembly made up of the majority of Irish MPs elected in the 1918 general election. The portfolio was created to promote economic growth and development throughout the country. The post was abolished after little over a year in existence.
