Constituency: Dublin Central
Cyprian Brady (Irish: Cyprian Ó Bradaigh; born 26 June 1962) is an Irish Fianna Fáil politician. Since 2007 he has been a Teachta Dála (TD) representing the Dublin Central constituency.
Brady is a former civil servant who for 20 years, ran the constituency office of the Taoiseach, Bertie Ahern. In 2002 Brady was nominated by the Taoiseach, Bertie Ahern, as a member of the 22nd Seanad Éirean
At the 2007 general election, held under Ireland’ single transferable vote system, Brady polled just 939 first preference votes (2.7%) in the first count. However he was elected on the forth count, due in large part to transfers from his running mate, the Taoiseach Bertie Ahern, and became the first TD ever to be elected with less than 1,000 first-preference votes.
