Enda Kenny was first elected a TD in 1975 at the age of just 24, having taken the seat held by his late father until his death.

He has been returned by the people of Mayo at every subsequent election and became leader of Fine Gael in 2002.

As the longest serving TD, Kenny is also the Father of the Dail. Talk of Enda Kenny remaining on as leader until after 2021 would still leave him well short of being the longest serving political leader.
