Members of the Nineteenth Dáil - Ger Connolly

Gerard C. "Ger" Connolly (born 16 April 1937) is a former Irish Fianna Fáil politician. A farmer and auctioneer, Connolly was first elected to the 19th Dáil as a Teachta Dála (TD) for the Laois–Offaly constituency on his first attempt at the 1969 general election and re-elected until retiring at the 1997 general election.

When Charles Haughey became Taoiseach in 1979, Connolly was appointed Minster of State at the Department of the Environment and was re-appointed to the same position during the Haughey Governments of 1982, 1987, and 1989.

He was not appointed a Minster of State under the succeeding Albert Reynolds government and retired in 1997.
