Description:
Richard Barry (born 4 September 1919) is a former Irish Fine Gael politician. A publican before entering politics, he first stood for election in the Cork East constituency at the 1951 general election, but was unsuccessful. He was first elected to Dáil Éireann at a by-election in 1953 following the death of the Labour Party Teachta Dála (TD) Seán Keane. He was re-elected at each subsequent election until he was retired at the 1981 general election. From 1961 he was elected for the Cork North East constituency.

He was appointed a Parliamentary Secretary by the Taoiseach Liam Cosgrave and served at the Department of Health from 1973–77. His daughter Myra Barry was elected in a by-election in 1979 for the same constituency of Cork North East. This is the only time a parent and child have been represented in the same constituency in the same Dáil.
