Camillus Glynn (born 4 October 1941) is a former Irish Fianna Fáil politician. He was a member of Seanad Éireann from 1997 to 2011.[1] A former psychiatric nurse, he was first elected to the Seanad in 1997 by the Administrative Panel, on his third attempt.[2] He was an unsuccessful candidate for Dáil Éireann at the 1997 general election for the Westmeath constituency.[2] He served on Westmeath County Council and Mullingar Town Council from 1979–2004.

On 9 October 2008, Glynn pleaded guilty to assaulting a businessman he met in a hotel in Mullingar. Glynn punched Tommy Wright, a former Fianna Fáil councillor, in the face after an exchange of words on 25 May 2008.[3] Glynn was ordered to pay €2,500 to a local charity.[3]

He retired from politics at the 2011 Seanad election.
