Veteran Anti Evictions Campaigner and former leader of Direct Democracy Ireland Ben Gilroy has announced his return to Politics representing the Irish Freedom Party in Dublin Bay North

Speaking to the Grand Torino Show on Tuesday , Mr Gilroy explained his decision to return to politics : "While I did put up many videos saying I had gone out of politics  Its hard when you look at the country you love , you look at the absolute state of every government department , you look at those people dying on the street and its hard to walk away from that . Hermann got onto me and asked would I run for the Irish Freedom Party , I told him I'd do a lot of soul searching , I got so much encouragement from a lot of people when I said id give it one last shot ".

Last Year , Mr Gilroy made national headlines after his European Elections Video went viral gaining more than 300,000 views in a matter of hours . The Video shows him smashing up Signs featuring words such as ‘state corruption’, ‘constitution violation’ , ‘stealing wealth’ , 'unlawful Evictions' and 'RTE' . Mr Gilroy went on to finish in 11th place overall in the Dublin Constituency with just over 2% of the vote ( 8,511 votes) .

Ben Gilroy is a CHAMPION FOR THE CITIZENS OF IRELAND. I am delighted with his nomination and he will leave the rabble in his wake, good luck Ben,you deserve it. He is a selfless man of caliber and if only our Dail was full of individuals like him. ALL THE BEST TO GEMMA O DOHERTY ACI, JUSTIN BARRETT NP, HERMAN KELLY IFP, RENUA AND ALL THEIR FELLOW PATRIOTS THAT PUT IRELAND FIRST, we had great Citizens before,101yrs ago and they will be honored by this turnout. It is not over yet,it has just begun so now it is up to " THE ELECTORATE " to do their individual best by voting these PARTIES FOR IRELAND into office. IRISHLAND FOREVERMORE!
