Patrick J. Crotty (23 November 1902 – 26 November 1970) was an Irish Fine Gael politician who served for twenty-one years as Teachta Dála (TD) for the Carlow–Kilkenny constituency.[1]

He was first elected to Dáil Éireann at the 1948 general election, and re-elected five times, at the 1951, 1954, 1957, 1961 and 1965 general elections.[2] He served as Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Industry and Commerce from 1954 to 1957.
