Pat Catney

Lagan Valley MLA


Pat Catney is the SDLP MLA for Lagan Valley.

A former publican, Pat has a lifetime's experience working in the hospitality sector and managing a number of small businesses. He is passionate about hospitality and reforming Northern Ireland's outdated licensing laws that are stifling our night-time economy, driving more young people away from home.

As the SDLP Spokesperson for Hospitality and High Street Renewal, Pat has been focused on helping retailers, hospitality businesses and others begin to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Pat is also a keen singer and performs with local choirs, particularly during the festive season. 

Pat is currently bringing forward new legislation that would end the injustice of period poverty in Northern Ireland by making period products available in all public buildings.
