Letterkenny Residents Party was an unregistered minor political party in Ireland. It was founded and registered in 2008[1] to contest the 2009 local elections in Letterkenny. It combined local residents with Francis McCafferty who polled 64 votes standing for the Socialist Party in the 2004 council election.[2] The party's only candidate, Tom Crossan, polled 417 votes and succeeded in being elected to Letterkenny Town Council.[3][4][5]

As of 2015, it is no longer a registered political party.
