Mary Jackman (born 30 April 1943) is an Irish Fine Gael politician. She was a Senator from 1989 to 1992, and from 1997 to 2002.[1]

She is from Castletroy in County Limerick. A member of Limerick County Council for the Castleconnell local electoral area since 1985,[2] Jackman has unsuccessfully contested four general elections in the Limerick East constituency (1989, 1992, 1997, and 2002),[3] falling just 305 votes short of winning seat at the 1997 general election. She was also defeated at the Limerick East by-election in March 1998, and did not stand at the 2007 general election.[3]

After her 1989 defeat, she was elected to the 19th Seanad on the Labour Panel. She lost her seat at the 1993 Seanad elections, but was re-elected in 1997 to the 21st Seanad. At the 2002 Seanad elections, she stood instead on the Industrial and Commercial Panel, but did not win a seat.[3]
