Johnny Fox (5 April 1948 – 17 March 1995) was an Irish independent politician and Teachta Dála (TD) for Wicklow.[1] He was a member of the Church of Ireland.

A farmer before entering politics, he was elected a Fianna Fáil member for Greystones on Wicklow County Council. He resigned from Fianna Fáil in 1992 and he was elected to the 27th Dáil at the 1992 general election.[2] After his death at the age of 46 in 1995, his Dáil seat was won by his daughter Mildred Fox, who was re-elected at the 1997 and 2002 general elections.
