Declan Kearney (born 19 December 1964) is an Irish Sinn Féin politician who was elected as a member (MLA) of the Northern Ireland Assembly to represent the South Antrim constituency at the 2016 election.[1] Originally from Antrim, he is the son of Oliver and Brigid (née Totten) Kearney.[1] He lived in Derry at the time of his election.[2][1] Prior to his election, Kearney served as National Chairman of Sinn Féin, in which capacity he apologised "for all the lives lost during the Troubles".[3] His brother, Ciarán Kearney, husband of Jane (née Donaldson), is the son-in-law of the late PIRA volunteer and Sinn Féin politician Denis Donaldson, who was assassinated near Glenties in County Donegal after having been exposed as a British agent.[4] References[edit]
