Louis J. Belton (born 30 November 1943)[1] is a former Irish Fine Gael politician from County Longford, and the seventh member of the Belton family to be elected to the Oireachtas.

Formerly a building society employee,[2] Belton was a member of Longford County Council from 1985.[3] He was first elected to Dáil Éireann in the 1989 general election as Teachta Dála (TD) for the constituency of Longford–Westmeath, but lost his seat at the 1992 general election when contesting the revised constituency of Longford–Roscommon. However, he was then elected to the 20th Seanad Éireann in 1993, when he topped the poll for the Administrative Panel. He regained his Dáil seat at the 1997 general election but lost it again at the 2002 general election to Mae Sexton of the Progressive Democrats. He did not contest the 2007 general election. His brother Paddy is a sitting county councillor and former Lord Mayor of Longford.
