(Christopher Joseph) Chris Wall (born 23 December 1946, in Dublin) is an associate of former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern. He served as Ahern's election agent at the 2007 general election, and after the election he was nominated by the Taoiseach to serve as a Senator for the final weeks of the 22nd Seanad.[1][2] He filled one of the vacancies caused by the election of four of the nominated Senators to Dáil Éireann.

A former Irish athlete, Wall served as the International Secretary for BLE (the forerunner to Athletic Association of Ireland) from 1984 to 2000.[3]
