Irish presidential election, 1976

The Irish presidential election in 1976 resulted from the sudden resignation of President Ó Dálaigh in October 1976, following an attack on him by the Irish Minister for Defence. Fianna Fáil nominated retiring European Economic Community Commissioner for Social Affairs and former Irish Minister for External Affairs, Patrick Hillery. With no other candidates nominated, Hillery became the sixth president of Ireland in December 1976.
