Thomas Burke (Clare politician)
Thomas T. Burke (1876 – 20 November 1951) was an Irish independent politician. He was born in Dunsallagh, Milltown Malbay, County Clare and was well known in his locality as a bonesetter, a service for which direct payment was, by tradition, not requested; instead, he asked locals to vote for him. He was first elected to Dáil Éireann as an independent Teachta Dála (TD) at the 1937 general election for the Clare constituency. He was re-elected on four occasions and served until he was defeated at the 1951 general election.
