Seán Kenny (born 1 October 1942) is an Irish Labour Party politician, who is a Teachta Dála (TD) for the Dublin North–East constituency. Kenny was re-elected to the Dáil for Dublin North–East at the 2011 general election, having previously served as a TD for the constituency from 1992 to 1997.[1]

A former executive officer in CIÉ, Kenny was elected to Dáil Éireann for Dublin North–East during the swing to Labour in the 1992 general election. During his time in the Dáil, he was a member of the Forum for Peace and Reconciliation and served as chairman of the Social Affairs Committee.

Like many other Labour TDs elected in 1992, he lost his seat at the 1997 general election. Kenny had previously unsuccessfully contested every general election from 1981 to 1989. He did not contest the 2002 general election or the 2007 general election.

From 1979 to 2011, he was a member of Dublin City Council, as a local councillor for Donaghmede. He was Lord Mayor of Dublin from 1991 to 1992.

He was re-elected to Dáil Éireann for Dublin North–East at the 2011 general election.[2]

He is not contesting the next Irish general election.[3]
