George Leeke (died 30 March 1939) was an Irish nationalist politician.

Leeke owned a hotel and fishery. He was elected to Londonderry County Council for the Nationalist Party. At the Northern Ireland general election, 1921, Leeke was elected in the Londonderry seat, although he did not take his seat until 1926. In 1929 his seat was abolished, and he instead won the Mid Londonderry seat, which he held until his death in 1939.[1] He was active in the Ancient Order of Hibernians.[2]
