Megan Fearon (born 29 July 1991) is an Irish Sinn Féin politician who was selected by her party as a member of the Northern Ireland Assembly (MLA) to represent the Newry and Armagh constituency in June 2012.[1] She replaced her party colleague Conor Murphy, an abstentionist MP in the parliament of the United Kingdom, who had resigned from the Northern Ireland Assembly as part of Sinn Féin's policy of abolishing double jobbing. A native of south Armagh, at the time of her selection, Fearon had just completed her last year at Queen's University Belfast, where she took a degree in Politics, Philosophy and Economics.[1] Before her selection, Fearon had campaigned for Sinn Féin and had worked to raise mental health and drug awareness.[1] She replaced party colleague Chris Hazzard as the youngest MLA.
