In the Irish presidential election of 1952, the second held since the creation of the office in 1937, the outgoing president, Seán T. O'Kelly decided to seek a second term. No party opposed him, though independent satirist Eoin (the Pope) O'Mahony tried and failed to be nominated. With only one nominated candidate, O'Kelly was re-elected without the need to hold a poll.[1]
