Patrick Connor (Irish politician)

Patrick Connor (15 March 1906 – 26 August 1989) was an Irish Fine Gael Party politician who served for four years as a senator and eight years as a Teachta Dála (TD).

Connor was first elected to Seanad Éireann on his first attempt, in 1957, when he was returned by the Administrative Panel to the 9th Seanad.

Following the retirement of Fine Gael TD Patrick Palmer, Connor stood as a Fine Gael candidate for the Kerry South constituency at the 1961 general election, and was returned to the 17th Dáil. He was re-elected at the 1965 general election, but lost his seat at the 1969 general election to his Fine Gael running-mate, Michael Begley. He did not contest any further elections.
