Billy Kelleher


Billy Kelleher

Billy Kelleher (born 20 January 1968) is an Irish Fianna Fáil politician. He is currently a Teachta Dála (TD) for the constituency of Cork North Central. He was nominated by the Taoiseach to the 20th Seanad in 1993. Kelleher was first elected to Dáil Éireann in the 1997 general election and retained his seat both at the 2002 and 2007 general elections. He is currently the Minister of State with special responsibility for Labour Affairs. He was previously the assistant Government Chief Whip.

In January 2006 Kelleher became embroiled in a minor controversy when he was caught speeding outside Cashel, County Tipperary on his way to Dáil Éireann. He was fined and received two penalty points on his driving licence. The misdemeanour was particularly ironic as it came in the same week when the government was coming under fire for a poor road safety record.
