The 15th Dáil was elected on May 18, 1954 and first met on June 2 when the 7th Government of Ireland was appointed. The 15th Dáil lasted for 1,022 days.

The Seventh Government of Ireland - or more commonly the Second Inter-Party Government - is the name given to the government which lead Ireland from 1954 to 1957. The coalition consisted of Fine Gael, Labour and Clann na Talmhan. Yet again a dislike of Fianna Fáil overcame all other problems in forming a government.
