Aodhán Ó Ríordáin (born July 1976) is an Irish Labour Party politician.[1] He was elected as a Teachta Dála (TD) for the Dublin North–Central constituency at the 2011 general election.[2]

He was previously a member of Dublin City Council for the North Inner City electoral area from 2004 to 2009 and then the Clontarf electoral area from 2009 to 2011. This move to the Clontarf area positioned him to run successfully in the Dublin North–Central constituency at the 2011 general election. He is a former teacher and was principal of St. Laurence O'Toole's Girls' Primary School. He is married to Áine Kerr, a political correspondent for the Irish Independent.

On 15 July 2014, he was appointed as Minister of State with responsibility for New Communities, Culture and Equality at the Departments of Justice and Equality and Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.[3]
