Maurice FitzThomas FitzGerald, 1st Earl of Desmond (died 25 January 1356 in Dublin Castle, Dublin, Ireland) was an Irish nobleman in the Peerage of Ireland, Captain of Desmond Castle in Kinsale, so-called ruler of Munster, and for a short time Lord Justice of Ireland. He led a rebellion against the Crown, and was suspected of aiming to make himself King of Ireland, but he was ultimately restored to favour.
