Michael Lynch (Irish politician)
Lynch stood unsuccessfully as a Fianna Fáil candidate for Dáil Éireann for the Meath constituency at the 1977 and 1981 general elections, before winning a seat there at the February 1982 general election. He was defeated at the November 1982 general 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 general 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.
Lynch owned and ran the Ceili House pub in Oldcastle.
