Michael McNamara TD
Dáil Candidate for Clare


It was a great honour to be elected to represent Clare on 25th February 2011. In so doing I regained the Labour seat won by Mosajee Bamjee in 1992 and long-held by Paddy Hogan.

From Scariff, Co. Clare, I studied in Scariff Community College, St. Flannan’s College, Ennis and UCC. I worked as a human rights lawyer with the OSCE in Eastern Europe and with the United Nations in Afghanistan before returning to Ireland in 2005 to run my family farm and practice at the Bar. I continued to work as a consultant for the EU and UN until elected.

I am a member of Scariff GAA Club and the IFA.

Statement of Expenses 2011-2014 are available here  

Where annual shortfall in expenses occurred, it was paid from my salary and in 2014, I was in a position to  return an underspend of €716.
