RALEIGH, N.C. – Kieran Shanahan, a Raleigh attorney and former member of the Raleigh City Council, served as a delegate to the recent Republican National Convention in Minneapolis. This is the second time Shanahan has served as a delegate to an RNC convention.

“It was truly a privilege to serve as a delegate to this year’s convention,” says Shanahan. “Senator John McCain is an American hero who has sacrificed a great deal for our country, and Sarah Palin is an exciting new player on the national political scene. It was an honor to be a part of their nominating convention.”

Kieran Shanahan is a former federal prosecutor and is currently the principal of Shanahan Law Group, PLLC, a Raleigh-based business litigation firm he founded in 2001. He previously served as a partner with Patton Boggs and as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in both the Eastern District of North Carolina and the Northern District of Georgia. Shanahan served four terms as a member of the Raleigh City Council and has been a delegate to numerous county, district and state Republican conventions. He serves on the board of directors for Prevent Child Abuse North Carolina and the Board of Trustees for the Bennett College for Women. He is founder and chairman of both the N.C. Property Rights Coalition and the N.C. Property Rights Foundation. Shanahan was named one of North Carolina’s “Super Lawyers” for 2007 and 2008.
