David Cullinane (born 4 July 1974) is an Irish Sinn Féin politician who has been a Teachta Dála (TD) for the Waterford constituency since the 2016 general election. He was a Senator for the Labour Panel from 2011 to 2016.[1]

Cullinane was born in Waterford.[2] He was elected to Waterford City Council at the 2004 local elections and retained his seat at the 2009 elections.[3] He was married to Kathleen Funchion, who is a Sinn Féin TD for Carlow–Kilkenny.

He became a member of Seanad Éireann in April 2011, sitting on the Labour Panel.[4]

The Irish Times described him in the Seanad as "a frequent, informed and often abrasive contributor across a wide range of areas, with a keen attention to the nuances of legislation".[5]

He unsuccessfully contested the Waterford constituency at the 2002, 2007 and 2011 general elections, before being elected in 2016.
