Frederick (Fred) Hugh Crowley (1880 – 5 May 1945) was an Irish Fianna Fáil politician. A lecturer and farmer, he was first elected to Dáil Éireann as a Fianna Fáil Teachta Dála (TD) for the Kerry constituency at the September 1927 general election. He was re-elected at the next seven general elections, and died in 1945 while still in office. From the 1937 general election, he was elected for the Kerry South constituency.
After his death, the by-election in Kerry South on 4 December 1945 was won for Fianna Fáil by his widow, Honor Crowley. It was the first case anywhere in Ireland of a woman succeeding her husband at a by-election. Honor Crowley, a daughter of the MP, John Pius Boland, remained a TD until her death in 1966.
