Pearse Doherty is the Finance Spokesperson for Sinn Féin and TD for the Constituency of Donegal South West. A founding member of Ógra Shinn Féin, serving on its National Executive between 1998 and 2001, he is currently a member of the Ard Comhairle of the party.

Pearse served as the party’s first Senator, elected onto the Agricultural Panel in 2007 before being elected as a TD in the 2010 Donegal South West by-election, held following a successful High Court case which he took against the Government. He topped the poll in the general election which followed.

Keen to address the problems facing ordinary people, Pearse completed a report “Awakening the West” during his time as a Senator, which focused on the marginalisation of western counties and proposals for the development of the region.  As Finance spokesperson, he is responsible for the preparation of the party’s annual alternative budget submission, which aims to promote a fairer and progressive economy.

 Pearse is currently a director of Donegal Charity Shop, Chairperson of the Phádraig Mhícheáil Airt Committee, a member of the GAA and involved with the local scouts group. Pearse lives in the Gaeltacht area of Gweedore with his wife Roisín and his four young sons. A member of Guth na Gaeltachta and fluent Irish speaker, Pearse is a keen advocate of the Irish Language and the development of the Gaeltacht regions.
