(Thomas J.) "Tom" Fitzpatrick (born 1926) is a retired Irish Fianna F√°il party politician who was elected six times as Teachta D√°la (TD) for Dublin South Central and Dublin Central.

A former publican and owner of "The Terenure Inn", Fitzpatrick was first a candidate for D√°il √Čireann at the 1961 general election in the Dublin South Central constituency. He was unsuccessful then, but at the 1965 general election he was returned to the 18th D√°il. After boundary changes, he stood in Dublin Central at the 1969 election, where he was elected to the 19th D√°il, and returned again in the 1973 election. After further boundary changes he stood again in Dublin South Central at the 1977 election, and was re-elected on two further occasions before being defeated in the November 1982 election.

In the 21st D√°il, he was briefly a Minister of State at the Department of Transport and Power and at the Department of Posts and Telegraphs, from July 1977 to January 1978.
