An April 2020 column in The Irish Times by O’Toole asserted that the destruction of the public image and reputation of the United States by Donald Trump culminated with his bungling of the COVID-19 pandemic crisis, and that now, pity was the only appropriate feeling for the American people, the majority of whom had not voted for him.


In August 2019, after the selection of Boris Johnson as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, O’Toole proposed to get Parliament to back an alternative Cabinet who would push back the October deadline for Brexit to allow a trade deal to be negotiated. The proposal required seven Sinn Féin MPs in northern Irish border constituencies to resign in favor of a pact between the four largest anti-Brexit parties in Ireland, thereby triggering by-elections at a certain date in mid-September. O’Toole believed they would result in a more hardline anti-Brexit parliamentary faction that would make a stronger case for a no-confidence vote in Johnson. The proposal received sharp criticism from Sinn Féin leader Mary Lou McDonald, who claimed the existing anti-Brexit factions in Parliament were strong enough without the party making too many policy concessions.


A June 26, 2018 column in The Irish Times by O’Toole examined how the Trump administration’s policies as well as public-facing communications concerning immigration and asylum-seekers from Mexico may be deliberately calculated to bring elements of fascism to the world’s leading democracy.


In June 2012, O’Toole compared the Irish Constitutional Convention to the American Citizens Union, a reformist political organisation that the New York City political machine Tammany Hall did not bother suppressing so long as it did not threaten its hegemony.


O’Toole was born in Dublin, grew up in a working-class family, and was educated at University College Dublin. In 2011, he was named by The Observer as one of “Britain’s top 300 intellectuals”, although he does not live in the UK and was one of five on the list who would not claim to be British. In 2012 and 2013 O’Toole was a visiting lecturer in Irish letters at Princeton University, and contributed to the Fund for Irish Studies Series.


O’Toole has criticised what he sees as negative attitudes toward immigration in Ireland, the state of Ireland’s public services, growing inequality during Ireland’s economic boom, the Iraq War, and the U.S. military’s use of Shannon Airport, among many other issues. In 2006, he spent six months reporting for The Irish Times in China.


In 1999, Fintan O’Toole published an article about the Serbian war crimes against Albanian civilians in Kosovo mentioning, among other publications Trotsky being shocked by the “viciousness of the assault on the general Albanian population which followed Serbia’s invasion and annexation of Kosovo in 1912”.


He joined The Irish Times as a columnist in 1988 and his columns have appeared twice-weekly ever since. He took a sabbatical in 1990–1991 to work as literary adviser to the Abbey Theatre. In 1994 he was one of the presenters for the last season of BBC TV’s The Late Show. From 1997 to 2001 he was drama critic of the Daily News in New York. In 2011, he was appointed as literary editor of The Irish Times. He also has published articles regularly in the New York Review of Books.


Soon after graduation, he became drama critic of In Dublin magazine in 1980. He joined the Sunday Tribune on its relaunch by Vincent Browne in 1983, and worked as its drama critic, literary editor, arts editor, and feature writer. From 1986 to 1987 he edited Magill magazine.
