All-Ireland vote for the Irish Republic

11 December 2018

The first truly democratic election held in Ireland was the General Election of December 1918. Seismic political events, including the Home Rule crisis, the World War, the 1916 Rising and the Conscription threat had shaken the country since the last General Election in 1910. Women had the vote for the first time, other restrictions on the universal right to vote had been removed and the widening of democracy helped to ensure a stunning victory for Sinn Féin on a Republican platform.

Israeli aggression must be challenged

2 July 2010

BY GERRY ADAMS

YOU may recall my meeting with Caoimhe Butterly of the Free Gaza Movement. On May 17th, I dedicated my blog to the story of the MV Rachel Corrie and the flotilla to the Gaza Strip. I’m glad I did.

But I never imagined what would happen to it.

I was on my way to an early-morning event in Tir Éoghan when the car radio broadcast the awful news of the death and... Free article

BY ROBBIE SMYTH

SINN FÉIN are not a “genuine” party of the Left in Ireland. They are ‘devilish, double-dealing Tories’.

It would be wrong to say that Sinn Féin are overlooked in the current issue of Village magazine, dedicated to looking at Ireland’s “Left”. They are mentioned loads of times. Thirteen, in fact, and yes I counted each one: 11 mentions came in one article about... Free article
