Catherine Anna Noone (born 24 June 1976) is an Irish Fine Gael politician.[2] She was elected to the 24th Seanad in April 2011 on the Industrial and Commercial Panel.[3]

She was a member of Dublin City Council from 2009 to 2011 for the South East Inner City electoral area when she was elected on the last count over 200 votes short of a quota.[4]

Originally from County Mayo, she studied law in National University of Ireland, Galway and is a practising solicitor.[1]

She was the Fine Gael Seanad spokesperson on Arts and Culture.

Noone stood for the Dáil in the 2016 General Election in the four seater Dublin West constituency but came in a disappointing 9th with only 1,074 first preference votes. She was eliminated after the second count.[5] She was later nominated for the Seanad and was elected on the 26th count. After being elected to her second term in Seanad Éireann, she was appointed by the Taoiseach as Deputy Leader of Seanad Éireann in July 2016.
