Fra McCann (born 19 June 1953) is an Irish politician. McCann became active in the Irish republican movement and during the 1970s was jailed on a number of occasions. In 1987, he was elected to Belfast City Council in a by-election,[3] representing Sinn Féin.

McCann was elected to the Northern Ireland Assembly representing West Belfast in 2003 and again in 2007.[4]

He was imprisoned during the 1970s for firearms offences. While being held in H-Block 3 of the Maze, McCann befriended Kieran Nugent and participated in the blanket protest.[5][6]

In June 2006 McCann was charged with assault and disorderly behaviour following an incident in west Belfast. The incident occurred as the PSNI were attempting to arrest a teenager for attempted robbery. However, McCann alleged heavy-handedness and stated "I tried to put myself between one of the officers and the girl when the police officer radioed for assistance." McCann was released on bail.[7][8]
