From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Maurice Edward Dockrell (6 October 1908 – 9 December 1986) was an Irish Fine Gael party politician who was elected to Dáil Éireann at ten successive general elections, serving as a TD for thirty-four years.

He was first elected in the 1943 general election as a TD for Dublin South in the 11th Dáil, and re-elected in 1944.

After constituency boundaries were redrawn in 1947, Dockrell was returned at the 1948 general election to the 13th Dáil for the Dublin South Central constituency, which re-elected him on five further elections. He was then elected twice as TD for Dublin Central, at the 1969 and 1973 elections. He lost his seat in the Fianna Fáil landslide at the 1977 general election.

From 1960–1961, he was Lord Mayor of Dublin.

His father, Henry Morgan Dockrell, and his brother, H. Percy Dockrell were also Fine Gael TDs. His grandfather, Sir Maurice Dockrell, had been a Unionist MP before independence.
