Noel O'Flynn (born 1 December 1951) is an Irish Fianna Fáil politician. He is currently a Teachta Dála (TD) for the Cork North Central constituency.[1]

He was first elected to Dáil Éireann at the 1997 general election. He was re-elected, topping the poll, at the 2002 general election, and retained his seat at the 2007 general election.[2]

Before the 2002 general election, O'Flynn stated that "some asylum-seekers in Cork were spongers, freeloaders and conmen."[3]

He was Chairman of the Oireachtas Joint Committee on Communications Marine and Natural Resources from 2002–2007. He is also a member of the Oireachtas Joint Committees on European Scrutiny and on Foreign Affairs.

O'Flynn served on Cork City Council from 1991-2003 having been re-elected in 1991 and 1999 in the North Central electoral area. He resigned his seat in July 2003 because of the dual mandate rules which prohibit members of the Oireachtas from sitting on a Local authority. The seat was filled by the co-option of his son Gary O'Flynn.

He was educated at Regional Technical College, Cork. He is married to Frances O'Keeffe and they have three sons, including Kenneth O'Flynn who was co-opted onto Cork City Council in December 2008, and was re-elected in June 2009.
