We are the
Social Democrats

Politics done differently

The Social Democrats believe in an inclusive, fair and just Ireland in which dignity, respect, and equality of outcome are paramount.

This republic of equals must be rights-based, inclusive and pluralistic with a clear separation between Church and State.

Good quality public services – in housing, healthcare, education and other areas – must be universally accessible to drive equality, promote sustainability, reduce costs for businesses and families, and provide a robust and reliable social and economic safety net.

A strong and vibrant economy, underpinned by robust workers’ rights and a stable and progressive tax base, is inextricably linked to a strong society.

Accountability and honest politics must be hallmarks of the modern republic we are seeking to build.

Sustainability, and protecting our natural environment, is the foundation stone of building a better Ireland – which we are determined to create and safeguard for future generations.

Join us in building a party that reflects the best of Ireland.
