Patrick (Paddy) J. Cummins (10 June 1921 – 5 March 2009) was an Irish Fianna Fáil politician.
The son of Paddy Cummins, who was a baker from Pearse Street, Dublin and a sergeant in the 6th Royal Dublin Fusiliers during World War I.

He was elected to Dáil Éireann as a Fianna Fáil Teachta Dála (TD) for the Dublin South–Central constituency at the 1958 by-election caused by the resignation of Independent TD Jack Murphy.
