Irish presidential election, 1952

In the Irish presidential election in 1952, the first held since the creation of the Republic of Ireland in 1949, the outgoing president, Sean 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 seek a nomination. With only one nominated candidate, O'Kelly was declared re-elected without a vote.
