Brady says he was always interested in politics and was always an Irish republican so it was an obvious progression for him to be selected to contest the Newry and Armagh Assembly seat in 2007 for Sinn Féin. He first took his seat in the Northern Ireland Assembly on 8 March 2007 and retained the seat in 2011. He was selected to contest the 2015 general election by party members in Newry and won the seat. He does not take his seat in the House of Commons of the United Kingdom, in line with Sinn Féin's abstentionist policy.

On 4 May 2015, during his Westminster election campaign, Brady was told by the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) of a death threat against him. During the early hours of the following morning, he was advised again of another death threat against him and a bomb threat on his family home in Newry. The PSNI searched the property and found no devices.

On 8 June 2017, Brady was re-selected by Sinn Féin in the Newry & Armagh constituency to defend his Westminster seat in the snap 2017 UK general election.
