Sinn Féin is in government in the North and is a major political party in the Dáil and in local government across this island.
We are the only all-Ireland political party and with each passing day our membership is increasing, our organisational capacity is improving, and we are presenting realistic alternative policies to meet the needs of 21st century Ireland.
On May 22nd and May 23rd, more than 350 men and women will be standing for Sinn Féin in the European and local government elections, north and south.
For those who reject austerity and want a different future, a better future; who want hope for themselves and for their families; who want jobs and prosperity; and who want a real republic on this island – Sinn Féin is that future.
Make 2014 a year of change.
If you want a new future – a New Republic – help Sinn Féin in our fundraising efforts by contributing to our election campaign.
Thank you for whatever you can afford.
