John Stack (politician)
At the 1885 general election, Stack was elected unopposed as Irish Parliamentary Party MP for the newly created North Kerry constituency; it was the only one of the four Kerry constituencies not be contested by a Conservative or Loyalist candidate. He was returned unopposed in 1886, and when the Irish Party split in 1891, he sided with the Anti-Parnellite majority. Stack did not contest the 1892 general election, when the Anti-Parnellite Thomas Sexton won the seat with a large majority over a Parnellite candidate.
