Patrick Byrne (born 2 April 1925) is a retired Irish politician. An accountant by profession, he was first elected to Dáil Éireann as an independent Teachta Dála (TD) for the Dublin North-East constituency at a by-election on 30 April 1956. [1] The by-election was caused by the death of his father, Alfie Byrne. In 1957 he joined Fine Gael and was re-elected at the 1957, 1961 and 1965 general elections.[2] He did not contest the 1969 general election.[2]

His father Alfie Byrne was an MP, TD, Senator and Lord Mayor of Dublin. His brothers Thomas Byrne and Alfred P. Byrne were also TDs.
