Thomas Patrick Dunning (? — 1973) was a scholar of Anglo-Saxon at University College Dublin, and a priest and member of the Congregatio Missionis. Dunning was a former student of J.R.R. Tolkien; the latter started supervising Dunning's thesis on 17 October 1952.[1][2]

Tolkien inscribed a Quenya sentence — a variation on a phrase occuring in Galadriel's Lament — in Dunning's copy of The Fellowship of the Ring: "Sí man i·yulmar men enquantuva?".[2]
