Shane Ross

Shane Peter Nathaniel Ross (born 11 July 1949) is an Irish politician and an independent member of Seanad Éireann for the University of Dublin constituency. He is one of three Senators representing the graduates of Trinity College Dublin (TCD) in the upper house of the Republic of Ireland's parliament.

Senator Ross is well known for standing up for small shareholders and consumers. In 2000, for example, he and Eamon Dunphy championed the case of small shareholders of Eircom after shares in the former state-owned company dropped by more than a third in value in just over a year. Senator Ross took the Board of Directors to task over the level of salaries, bonuses and fees being paid and denounced a plan whereby senior management were to get share options at a price below the flotation price.

Born in 1949, Shane Ross graduated from TCD in History & Political Science in 1971. A former stockbroker, Senator Ross is now Business Editor of Sunday Independent, Ireland's biggest-selling weekend broadsheet. He is married to Ruth Buchanan, a journalist with RTÉ, Ireland's national broadcaster.
