James Lennon

James Lennon (died 13 August 1958) was an Irish Sinn Féin politician.

He was elected unopposed as a Sinn Féin MP for the Carlow constituency at the 1918 general election.[1] In January 1919, Sinn Féin MPs refused to recognise the Parliament of the United Kingdom and instead assembled at the Mansion House in Dublin as a revolutionary parliament called Dáil Éireann, though Lennon did not attend as he was in prison.[2]

He again elected unopposed for the Carlow–Kilkenny constituency at the 1921 elections. He opposed the Anglo-Irish Treaty and voted against it. He stood unsuccessfully as an anti-Treaty Sinn Féin candidate at the 1922 general election.[3]
