Michael McGrath (born 23 August 1976) is an Irish Fianna Fáil politician. He has been a Teachta Dála (TD) for the Cork South–Central constituency since 2007.[1] He was first elected at the 2007 general election.[2] He was a member of Passage West Town Council from 1999 to 2007, and a member of Cork County Council for the Carrigaline electoral area from 2004 to 2007.
