Dermot Fitzpatrick (born 12 April 1940) is a former Irish Fianna Fáil politician.[1] He is a native of Dublin city, and was educated at Coláiste Mhuire, an Irish language secondary school in the city, and at University College Dublin, from which he graduated with a degree in medicine. Prior to his entry into politics, he worked as a family doctor.

He was a Teachta Dála (TD) for the Dublin Central constituency. Fitzpatrick was first elected to Dáil Éireann at the 1987 general election but lost his seat at the 1992 general election. In 1997, he was nominated by the Taoiseach to Seanad Éireann. He regained his Dáil seat at the 2002 general election.[2]

He retired at the 2007 general election. His daughter Mary Fitzpatrick, a Fianna Fáil member of Dublin City Council, was one of three Fianna Fáil candidates in Dublin Central for the 2007 general election. (The other candidates were the Taoiseach Bertie Ahern and then Senator Cyprian Brady). She did not get elected.
