Fionán Lynch, son of Letterkenny’s Independent Town Councillor Jim Lynch, has recently been appointed to the US Embassy in Ireland Youth Council.

The Youth Council comprises a diverse cross-section of young people, including students, young entrepreneurs, civil society members, and government representatives who have been nominated to the US Embassy because they ‘characterise the promising future of Ireland.’

Fionán Lynch, a previous Chairperson of the Northern Regional Council of Young Fine Gael, is currently studying International Relations in Dublin City University and has worked with Fine Gael T.D for Kilkenny/Carlow John Paul Phelan in his office in Leinster House for six months.

Youth Councils have been created at U.S. Embassies and Consulates worldwide to encourage a two-way dialogue with emerging young leaders to help find solutions to shared challenges.
