Members of the Ninth Dáil - John O'Shaughnessy

John Joseph O'Shaughnessy was an Irish politician and farmer. He was first elected to Dáil Éireann at the 1932 general election as a Farmers' Party Teachta Dála (TD) for the Limerick constituency. After the 1932 general election, O'Shaughnessy along all other sitting Farmers' Party TDs joined the newly formed National Centre Party and they contested the 1933 general election under that banner; however O'Shaughnessy was not re-elected in that election. He was elected as a Fine Gael TD at the 1937 general election but lost his seat at the 1938 general election.
