Michael Doherty (Irish politician)
A native of Esker, Ballinalee, County Longford, Doherty entered local politics in 1967 serving as a county councillor for over two decades before eventually stepping down from public life in the mid 1990s.
An auctioneer by profession, Michael, or ‘Mickey’ as he was more commonly referred to by his friends and peers, also enjoyed a two-year spell as a senator (1987–89) after securing election to the 18th Seanad’s administrative panel. Doherty was closely aligned to former Taoiseach Albert Reynolds becoming a special advisor upon the latter's election in 1992.
