On 2 January, Creighton announced that she would found a new political party in spring 2015. The party was to be founded under four principles, including, she claimed, "building an economy for entrepreneurs" and "giving politics back to the people." Creighton said: "We want to reboot Ireland and we want those who are as passionate about this country as we are to join us on this mission". She hoped her new party would raise €1 million in small donations before the next general election.
Renua was launched on 13 March 2015, with Creighton as its leader. The party contested the February 2016 general election, but lost all three of its seats. Creighton resigned as party leader on 14 May 2016.
Initially elected as a member of Fine Gael, she lost the party whip when she voted against the government's bill which demarcated the circumstances by which abortion could be legally carried out in the State. Following her resignation from Fine Gael in July 2013, she sat as an Independent TD until March 2015 and the launch of Renua. She lost her seat at the 2016 general election and resigned as Renua leader in May 2016.
Creighton was involved in the co-ordination of the planning and execution of Ireland's 2013 EU Presidency, chairing a government committee responsible for all policy preparations and oversight. In January 2013, she hosted a meeting of European Affairs Ministers in Dublin which focused on strengthening the democratic legitimacy of European Union states. Creighton played a central role during the 2012 referendum on the Stability Treaty, speaking at numerous public meetings and events. Along with Simon Coveney, she devised Fine Gael's campaign for a 'yes' vote.
Creighton was expelled from the Fine Gael parliamentary party on 11 July 2013, when she defied the party whip by voting against the Protection of Life During Pregnancy Bill 2013, which allowed a termination of pregnancy by doctors in the case of a threat to a woman's life, including a risk of suicide. She also resigned as Minister of State for European Affairs. On 13 September 2013, she and six other expellees formed the Reform Alliance, described as a "loose alliance" rather than a political party. The expulsion was criticised as indicative of the suppressing of independent voices by the party whip system and, as such, the need for having an independent Seanad. Creighton joined the Dáil Technical Group in September 2014.
Creighton is against abortion, and believes "We celebrate the right of human beings to enjoy life – whether we speak of a criminal on death row, or an innocent baby girl, or a baby with Down syndrome. None of us are perfect, but our life is worthy and we are all worthy of life. Who are any one of us to determine that even one single life is not worth living, not worth protecting?"
During her time as Minister, Creighton visited every EU member, candidate and aspiring country at least once, and represented the government at meetings and conferences such as the Croatia Summit in July 2012, the EU–ASEAN ministerial meeting in Brunei in April 2012 and the EU–ASEM meeting in Budapest in June 2011. She was also the first Irish government Minister to officially meet a Minister from Burma, when she met its Minister of Foreign Affairs in April 2012.
Creighton was an early advocate of eurobonds as a potential solution to the eurozone crisis. Following a meeting with her French counterpart in Paris in December 2012, she publicly called for the European Central Bank to become a lender of last resort.
She played a key role in Fine Gael's campaign for a 'yes' vote in both referendums on the Treaty of Lisbon. Creighton was re-elected in February 2011, topping the poll in Dublin South-East. Following Fine Gael's entry into government, she was appointed by Enda Kenny as the Minister of State for European Affairs.
Upon taking office she was openly critical of the response by European leaders to the eurozone crisis, telling an audience in London in May 2011:
Creighton stated in February 2011 that while she supported civil partnerships, which were then in the process of coming into effect, she opposed same-sex marriage and believed that "marriage is primarily about children, main purpose being to propagate and create." Controversy surrounding the comment, and its resulting backlash made national papers, and led to official statements being issued by Fine Gael distancing the party from her comments. She later changed her view to support same-sex marriage.
Creighton married former TD and Senator Paul Bradford, a former colleague in Fine Gael and also a member of Renua, in April 2011. They have one daughter, born in 2014, and two sons born in 2017 and 2019. She founded Vulcan Consulting in 2015, and serves as its CEO. In September 2018, she was appointed to the board of Horse Sport Ireland.
Creighton was elected to Dáil Éireann on her first attempt, at the 2007 general election, as its youngest member, the first TD born in the 1980s. She was appointed Fine Gael Spokesperson on European Affairs in 2007, remaining in post until 2010. During that period she was critical of party leader Enda Kenny. In July 2010, she criticised what she termed the "cute hoor politics" in Fine Gael. That October she was appointed as party deputy Spokesperson on Justice, with special responsibility for Immigration, Integration and Equality.
While at Trinity College, Creighton was elected Deputy Secretary General of the Youth of the European People's Party. She was elected to Dublin City Council in 2004, at the age of 24, representing the Pembroke local electoral area.
Creighton grew up in Claremorris, County Mayo, where her father was a bookmaker and her mother a teacher. She is a graduate of Trinity College, Dublin, where she gained a Bachelor of Laws in 2002. She was a member of the Trinity College branch of Young Fine Gael. In 2003, she qualified as an attorney-at-law for the state of New York. She was called to the Irish bar in 2005.
