Fast Facts You Need To Know
In October 2018, Lenihan announced his intention to seek the Fianna Fáil nomination for the Dublin constituency in the 2019 European Parliament elections. At the party candidate selection meeting February 2019 Lenihan placed fourth out of four candidates with 108 votes of the 838 ballots cast.
He was from 2011 to 2015 a Vice President of the Skolkovo Foundation, the coordination body for a planned high-tech innovation centre on the edge of Moscow, where he worked on international partnership development.
He lost his seat at the 2011 general election, with his first preference vote declining from 20.5% in 2007 to just 5%. He placed eight in the poll and was eliminated on the fourth count.
While appearing in March 2011 on Tonight with Vincent Browne on television, presenter Vincent Browne asked if there was “a happy coincidence” between matters of national importance and what Lenihan was personally interested in, leading to what The Irish Times described as “some on-air rage”.
In July 2011, Lenihan joined Skolkovo Foundation, a planned scientific and innovation center outside Moscow, Russia. In August 2012, Lenihan joined the board of San Leon Energy, an oil and gas explorer with concessions in Poland, Albania, Morocco and Ireland.
In September 2010, Lenihan attracted controversy when it emerged that he was to attend the launch of The Origin of Specious Nonsense, an anti-evolution book by John J. May. PZ Myers, on his Pharyngula blog, expressed shock that a Minister of State with special responsibility for Science would lend support to such a book. Lenihan claimed that he was “not launching the book as Minister for Science but rather as a TD because May is a constituent of his”. In the wake of this controversy, May asked Lenihan not to launch the book “because I am so embarrassed that the Minister for Science has been so insulted” and “eviscerated” on a political website.
Lenihan is the son of former Tánaiste, TD and Minister Brian Lenihan. His grandfather, Patrick Lenihan, also served in the Oireachtas. His aunt, Mary O’Rourke, is a former TD, Senator and Minister, while his brother, Brian Lenihan Jnr was a TD and most notably Minister for Finance during the Irish economic downturn from 2008 to 2011.
Lenihan was diagnosed with a benign tumour in 2007.
In 2007, he became Ireland’s first Minister of State for Integration and led a government initiative to deal with large volume immigration into Ireland which culminated with the publication of a new policy statement “Migration Nation”.
In 2007, he banned Gardaí and Garda reserves from wearing the Sikh turban, saying “if we are to take integration seriously, people who come here must understand our way of doing things. When the President and Ministers travel to the Middle East, they accept cultural requirements of the country and the culture in which they are operating. It is a vice-versa situation with regard to Ireland”.
Lenihan was involved in some controversy on 18 May 2005, when off-microphone he told opposition TD Joe Higgins of the Socialist Party that he should “stick to [helping] the kebabs”, a reference to the Turkish workers who were making a legal challenge against their employer, GAMA. Lenihan apologised in the Dáil for the remarks.
In Bertie Ahern’s cabinet reshuffle of 2004, he was appointed as Minister of State at the Department of Foreign Affairs with special responsibility for Overseas Development and Human Rights. Lenihan restructured Ireland’s international aid programme, creating Irish Aid, the Irish Government’s programme of assistance to developing countries. Through Irish Aid, Lenihan administered a budget of almost a billion euros which is used to help developing nations thus continuing Ireland’s tradition of reaching out to other post-colonial nations.
Lenihan was first elected to Dáil Éireann at the 1997 general election.
In the 1990s he went into broadcast journalism working with the Dublin radio station 98FM. Lenihan also worked as a senior executive with O2, an Irish-owned mobile operator, and subsequently worked as an advisor for the company.
Lenihan began his working life as a newspaper journalist working in the 1980s in the House of Commons in London, where he was a political correspondent for the Irish News. While in London he was also a member of the European Commission’s Speakers Panel.
