Herlihy was first elected to Parliament in the 1996 elections as MP for Otago, and was re-elected in the 1999 elections. In the 2002 elections, he lost narrowly to David Parker of the Labour Party.

Herlihy narrowly missed out on becoming a list MP, being two places below the cut-off line.
Before entering politics, Herlihy was a farmer.
