Michael Lynch (Irish politician)

Michael Lynch (born 25 August 1934)[1] is a former Fianna Fáil politician from County Meath in Ireland. He served two short terms as a Teachta Dála (TD) in the 1980s, and was a senator for four years.

Lynch stood unsuccessfully as a Fianna Fáil candidate for Dáil Éireann in the Meath constituency at the 1977 and 1981 general elections, before winning the seat at the February 1982 election. He was defeated at the November 1982 election, but was then elected to the 17th Seanad Éireann on the Administrative Panel.

He was returned to the Dáil at the 1987 general election, but after a further defeat at the 1989 election (by his Fianna Fáil colleague Mary Wallace) he did not stand for the Dáil again. He was also unsuccessful in the 1993 elections to the 20th Seanad.[2]
