1908 County Carlow by-election

The 1908 County Carlow by-election was held on 3 February 1908. The by-election was held due to the death of the incumbent Irish Parliamentary MP, John Hammond. It was won by the Irish Parliamentary candidate Walter Kavanagh,[1] who was elected unopposed.

Kavanagh was endorsed by the Catholic Bishop of Kildare and Leighlin Dr. Patrick Foley (former president of Carlow College), due to Kavanagh's support for a Catholic University of Ireland. Kavanagh served for Carlow until 1910.
