Brian Leddin is an Irish Green Party politician who has been a Teachta Dála (TD) for the Limerick City constituency since the 2020 general election. He was appointed Chair of the Committee on Climate Action in September 2020.[1]

In the 2019 local elections, he became the Green Party's first-ever Limerick City and County Councillor, and his election as a TD in February 2020 made him Limerick's first-ever Green Party TD. Saša Novak Uí Chonchúir was co-opted to Leddin's seat on Limerick City and County Council following his election to the Dáil.

Leddin's mother Kathleen is a former Mayor of Limerick and an Fine Gael member of Limerick City Council and his father Tim was also Mayor of Limerick and also a Fine Gael member of Limerick City Council.[2]
