J. P. Slattery was a publican in Ballarat, Victoria.



Slattery was the publican of the Plough and Harrow Hotel, Ballarat. He later moved to Melbourne and ran the Exford Hotel and the Tower Hotel.

Details of his life in Ballarat were included in his wife's obituary in 1917:

Slattery, who at one time was licensee of the Plough and Harrow Hotel, Ballarat, and latterly of the Exford and Tower Hotels, Melbourne, will regret to learn of the death of his wife. which took place at his residence, Brunswick, yesterday. The deceased lady was associated with the early history of Ballarat, and will be well and favorably remembered by many, especially by the farmers of Bungaree, Clark's Hill, Learmonth, and other districts; Slattery's Hotel, Ballarat, being for years the recognised meeting place of farmers. The deceased was a sister of the late Thos. Maher (who was also well and favorably known), and aunt of Mrs Thos. Quinlivan, of Royal Exchange Hotel, Ballarat.
