Toirdhealbhach Ó Conchobhair (died 1239) was a King of Connacht.

Toirdhealbhach (Turlough) was a son of Ruaidhrí Ó Conchobhair, King of Connacht. A daughter of Toirdhealbhach, Bean Mhídhe, seems to have married Maol Mhuire an Sparáin, son of Murchadh Mac Suibhne. The record of this union appears to be evidence that Toirdhealbhach utilised overseas military support from Clann Suibhne in his bid to claim the kingship of Connacht. In 1225, Toirdhealbhach attained the kingship with the aid of Aodh Méith Ó Néill, and was inaugurated at Carnfree. Three years later, in 1228, Toirdhealbhach was expelled from the kingship and replaced by his younger brother, Aodh, who was likewise inaugurated at Carnfree.
