Bernadette Sands McKevitt (born in November 1958) is an Irish republican, and a founding member of the 32 County Sovereignty Movement.
She lived in the mainly loyalist Rathcoole area of Newtownabbey before her family were forced out of their home, when they moved to republican West Belfast. She is the younger sister of Provisional Irish Republican Army (IRA) hunger striker Bobby Sands. She was unable to attend his funeral because she was on the run at the time.
Her husband Michael McKevitt was the Quartermaster General of the IRA and later a founding member of an anti-Good Friday Agreement splinter group commonly known as the Real Irish Republican Army. Bernadette and McKevitt have three children.
