  • Tony Kett (1 June 1951 – 19 April 2009) was an Irish Fianna Fáil politician and member of Seanad Éireann. In 1997, he was elected to the 21st Seanad by the Administrative Panel. He was elected again in 2002 and in 2007. Born in Woodlawn, County Galway, Kett was a former administrator of the Central Remedial Clinic. He was reportedly a key member of the "Drumcondra Mafia", as Bertie Ahern's inner circle of constituency supporters are dubbed. He was co-opted as member of Dublin City Council for the North Inner City electoral area in 1988 to replace Bertie Ahern (who had resigned when he was appointed a government minister) and was re-elected at the 1999 local elections. With the abolition of the dual mandate, he did not contest the 2004 local elections. He died on 19 April 2009 of cancer. Tributes were led by Taoiseach Brian Cowen and former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern. Kett was succeeded in the Seanad by former County Louth councillor James Carroll. (en)
  • Tony Kett (* 1. Juni 1951 in Ballinasloe, County Galway; † 19. April 2009 in Dublin) war ein irischer Politiker der Fianna Fáil und von 1997 bis zu seinem Tod Senator im Seanad Éireann. Kett besuchte das St. Joseph's College in Ballinasloe und später das College of Commerce in Rathmines, Dublin. 1988 wurde er in den Stadtrat von Dublin, den Dublin City Council, gewählt, um den vakanten Sitz von Bertie Ahern einzunehmen. Dieser hatte sein dortiges Mandat auf Grund seiner Wahl zum Taoiseach niedergelegt. 2004 konnte Kett durch das Verbot des dualen Mandats nicht mehr zur Wahl in den Dublin City Council antreten, da er 1997 in den 21. Seanad Éireann gewählt worden war und diesem weiterhin angehörte. November 2009 besetzte sein Parteikollege James Carroll Ketts vakanten Sitz im Seanad Éireann neu. Dies war ohne Nachwahl möglich, da die anderen Parteien auf eigene Kandidaten verzichteten. Kett war verheiratet und hinterlässt einen Sohn und zwei Töchter. (de)
