I like Ben , hoping he does reasonably well in Dublin Bay South, he's a very good debater with a broad knowlege of politics in general . it will be very difficult , but he's young with a promising future ahead of him and hey if at first you dont succeed try try again

Anybody that votes for incumbent parties like ff,fg,sf,or labor have rocks in their head,or living under a rock for decades.No matter what combination of government they have formed,they have destroyed trust in the electorate. They have repeatedly SOLD-OUT IRELAND,ITS PEOPLE,ITS CULTURE,AND FAMILY VALUES INCLUDING EDUCATION. I ask you, name anything they have done to the benefit of Ireland/Citizens as opposed to the benefit of FOREIGN INFLUENCE...EU,UN,NGO's,SOROS,COMMUNISM,ISLAM,AGENDA 21, etc.etc. It will not come off the tip of your tongue,and it will test even the best of memory because they do not give A SHIT,about you,you're  Ireland,you're culture,you're heritage, " YOU'RE HOME ". Before you finish reading this there will be plenty of NEGATIVES come to your mind,NEVER Forget The Forced BANK BAILOUT BY IRISH TAXPAYERS, and that is considered an "ENTRE" in the COARSE OF CRAP they have SERVED ( Govts and eu) to the pallets of IRISH VOTERS,only God Knows what they will serve you by the time,if they reach the Desert because the ABORTION BAN ON FREE SPEECH coarses MADE ME PUKE....EXCUSE ME FROM THE TABLE..PLEASE!
It may well be the LAST SUPPER FOR IRISH POLITICS unless we THROW THE TRASH OUT and serve the people a FINE COARSE OF PATRIOTISM! We need the NATIONALISTS PARTIES NOW,ALL OF THEM,FOR THE BENEFIT AND STOMACHS OF AN ALL IRELAND CITIZENS.
I ONLY WISH THERE WERE MORE CANDIDATES NOT SO FEW...
GOD BLESS YOU IRELAND AND THE ENLIGHTENED VOTERS !

Thank You yet again Election Watch!

My sincere congratulations to the leadership of the Irish Freedom Party and to those nominated to represent the Irish Freedom Party in the upcoming General Election.

I like many others in Ireland, look forward to seeing even more candidates in even more areas around the island of Ireland, who are willing to stand against those who wish only to destroy our constitution and Irish way of life.

Its very difficult for new parties like Irish freedom , national party etc . the media only want to talk about FF and FG , its very unfair . RTE starts every day telling people about all the Good things fine gael are doing and all of the discussion is focused on fine gael and fine fail for the rest of the day .

1916 proclamation "we declare the right of the people of ireland to the ownership of ireland and to the unfettered control of irish destinies . to be sovereign and indefeasible"

de valera is spot on . Connolly was a very proud irishman and member of the gaelic league . He disagreed with many socialists on many issues . for example , he was totally opposed to bringing sexual matters into the realm of socialism . in his writings he frequently refers to "the irish race" which displays his fondness for nationhood and country . the new left wing teach people to hate country and nationhood . Connolly was not like that . Read his writings and you'll see .

i wouldn't like to see sport go down the st pauli / bohs fc road where they've become political in nature . whether your on the left or right , thats for your own personal time , sport is for everyone ,to bring everyone together regardless of political views . This is why political organisations whoever they are should not be allowed to get a foothold on it .

if your a leitrim fan , ask yourself this , when was the last time you saw a racist incident anywhere in leitrim . I live in a populated area in dublin with many different nationalities and I've NEVER ever seen one racist incident in all my time . Its a Non issue . These organisations are just using it as a way to control public discourse (and get funding) and make people afraid to question anything to with migration on the basis that they'll be considered racist
