John Thomas Donovan
He was elected as the Member of Parliament (MP) for West Wicklow at a by-election in August 1914, to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Edward Peter O'Kelly. He did not defend his seat at the 1918 general election, when it was won by the Sinn Féin candidate. He stood instead in South Donegal, where he was defeated by Sinn Féin's Peter J. Ward.
