The North Louth by-election of 1911 was held on 15 March 1911. The by-election was held due to the election of the incumbent Irish Parliamentary MP, Richard Hazleton being overturned on petition due to corrupt and defamatory conduct.[1] Hacleton had previously ousted the prominent All-for-Ireland League politician Tim Healy in the December 1910 general election. It was won by the former MP and Irish Parliamentary candidate Augustine Roche,[2] who was elected unopposed.
