Senator and Sinn Féin spokesperson for
youth affairs, LGBT rights and the arts.

My name is Fintan. I’m a Senator and Sinn Féin activist.

On April 25th 2016 – the centenary of the Easter Rising, I was elected as the first Senator of the 25th Seanad Éireann. Having received a nomination from the National Youth Council of Ireland and the Genealogical Society of Ireland, I was elected on the first count of the Cultural and Educational panel.

 

I am the youngest member of the Oireachtas, a former Mayor of South Dublin, and a Sinn Féin spokesperson for youth affairs, LGBT rights and the arts.
