Seán Sherwin

Seán Sherwin (born 1946) was an Irish Fianna Fáil Party politician who sat from 1970–1973 as TD for Dublin South West.

He was an unsuccessful candidate in the Dublin South West constituency at the 1969 general election. However, Dublin South West's long-serving Labour Party TD Seán Dunne, who had been re-elected at the general election, died only seven days after polling. Sherwin was selected as Fianna Fáil candidate at the by-election on 4 March 1970, and won, taking his seat in the 19th Dáil.

He resigned from Fianna Fáil in 1971 in the wake of the Arms Crisis, and joined Kevin Boland's new party Aontacht Éireann.Source: "Breakaway Parties Have Poor Record", by Carol Coulter, "The Irish Times", Monday 22 April 1985).] The new party failed to take off at the 1973 general election, and Sherwin lost his seat to Fine Gael's Declan Costello.compare results of [http://electionsireland.org/result.cfm?election=1969&cons=105 1969 general election] with those of the [http://electionsireland.org/result.cfm?election=1973&cons=105 1973 general election] ]
