Pat Codd

Patrick "Pat" Codd (died April 2006)[1] was a Fine Gael politician from Enniscorthy, County Wexford in Ireland. He was a senator from 1975 to 1977.[2]

Codd was elected to the 13th Seanad on the Agricultural Panel at a by-election on 23 April 1975 following the deaths of Bob Aylward and Cornelius O'Callaghan. He stood unsuccessfully in the Wexford constituency at the 1977 general election[3] and did not contest the subsequent elections to the 14th Seanad.[2] He later sought a Fine Gael nomination for the 1982 general election, but at the selection conference he was beaten by Ivan Yates, a then little-known 20-year-old member of Enniscorthy Urban District Council.[4]

At the 1979 local elections he was elected as a member of Wexford County Council, serving until the 1985 local elections. He was chairman of the county council from 1984 to 1985,[1] while his son-in-law Martin Dunbar was a Labour Party member of the council.[4]

In later years he was the organiser of the Self-Help Ireland charity in the south-east region, and raised large sums of money for the organisation.[4]
