From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Johnny Connor (died 11 December 1955) was an Irish Clann na Poblachta Party politician and TD for Kerry North.

He was elected to D√°il √Čireann on his third attempt, at the 1954 general election, unseating sitting Fine Gael TD John Lynch and taking his seat in the 15th D√°il. He had been an unsuccessful Clann na Poblachta candidate at the 1948 general election and at the1951 election.

Clann na Poblachta had won ten seats at the 1948 general election, but after the collapse of the First Inter-Party Government, it had been reduced to two deputies at the 1951 general election. Connor's victory was the party's only gain in 1954.

After Connor's death in December 1955, the by-election for his D√°il seat was held on 29 February 1956 and won for Clann na Poblachta by his 21-year-old daughter, Kathleen O'Connor.
