Fintan Warfield is a Senator and former Mayor of South Dublin County Council and was a Sinn Féin councillor for the Templeogue-Terenure local electoral area.

He has been active in local politics since the age of sixteen. He attended St. Mac Dara’s Community College and continues to play Gaelic football for St. Judes GAA Club in Templeogue. At the age of 17, he moved to Galway City where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Film & Television.

Following college, he was delighted to perform extensive tours with Derek Warfield & The Young Wolfe Tones throughout the United States. From a young age, he had a keen interest in Ireland’s cultural heritage of arts and music. He is currently a voluntary chairperson of the Civic Theatre. Their mission is to mount an artistic and challenging programme of contemporary and classical work in theatre, dance, opera and music for the community of South Dublin County.
