We are five!

It has been an extraordinary first five years. We now have 24 SocDems public representatives and a party full of members with ambition, passion and a huge appetite to build on very strong foundations, all committed to bringing real social democracy to Ireland.

We have contested Local, European, By-Elections, a General Election and the Seanad elections, all in just over a year. We now have 18 Councillors across the country and six TDs – tripling our elected representatives

There is a growing appetite for our politics, based on prioritising quality public services which serve the public interest, for everyone. We want to reshape work/life balance. To build a society which gets it right for children. To recreate an economy which is greener, but fairer too. All with accountability, transparency and integrity, restoring trust to public life.

And we’re only just getting started!

We are the most passionate and promising Party in Ireland. We know where we want to go, and we have the confidence and commitment to get there.

Thank you for all your support so far, and we would be delighted if you would join us on the exciting journey ahead.
