SF badly need a change of leader and to show its not some communist style party appointment.

They also need to take a position on immigration.

They have upset a lot of people Racing , People letting them know how they Feel , seems to be a bit more than Skangers involved tbh

people worried about their Nation feel they have Betrayed by the One Party you would not expect it from ..

A lovely Country with Fine People , trying  to keep it that way imo

If people were so 'upset' Casemoney they would protest vote against the Coalition(FF/FG) and SF would be the beneficiary,the opposite and people are quite happy with the government.

they are on course to do better than in 2019 local elections, were they done particularly poorly, but following year bolted up in General election.
These local elections are quite parochial, wouldn't read much into it if having a punt on the big one in future. People tend to vote for big Declan who lives round corner and we skull a few pints with.

don't know how Donegal results went but in Donegal News thursday Sinn Fein had no adverts in advertising candidates, Fine Gael 4 massive adverts, Fianna Fail one massive advert, few independents with big adverts, articles about Micah Redress. Found it strange, maybe saving the euros for the bigger prize.

What amazes me is how anyone can look at any of the parties as being successful.

Not even half the electorate could be bothered to vote.

They purposefully call elections on weekdays so young people will find it harder to vote. Also working class have to find alternative child minding due to schools being taken over for voting. They call this democracy.

Not a single candidate knocked on my door. They throw leaflets in the letterbox but too lazy to knock on the door.

FG/FF going aroung giving it the big un and they barely scratch over 10% of the electorate ffs

As for SF, they need to bin MLD asap. The stern mother routine is getting boring.

Do SF TDs still donate their wage to the party? That garbage needs binning as well. I would never vote or trust for anyone who would do something so stupid.

They were meant to take the ‘industrial ‘workers wage
and donate the rest and said they did but didn’t

so Lfc you are clarifying Sinn Fein TDs don't donate their wages to the party and Racingqueen is wrong ? I've never heard of this before, everyday is a school day, may you have won sinn fein a vote.

Their Westminster wages they don’t collect  - that’s ideological reasons and the fact they don’t attend

It was - in theory - policy for Sinn Fein tds in Ireland to just take the workers wage
Not so much in practice .. they’re worse than the tories really

Good recovery Lfc, you done well, Obviously Sinn Fein TD's not involved in Westminster payments.

Well if you are a Party and an mp that claims to represent
the working classes you should take an working class wage ,, don’t you think ?
Or don’t pretend to do so ,, even The tories wouldn’t stoop to that

Go woke Go Broke

Irish coalition parties set to trounce Sinn Fein in local elections

https://www.reuters.com/world/europe/irish-coalition-parties-set-trounce-sinn-fein-local-elections-2024-06-08/

must be all the Skangers not Voting for them

Sinn Fein, the former political wing of the Irish Republican Army, saw a commanding three-year lead in opinion polls almost disappear recently as more voters came to see immigration as their top concern
Report MALAY June 9, 2024 2:16 PM BST
that didn't happen the right wing independents won nothing, SF policy on immigration is similar to Coalition.
In fact fine gael advert in paper on thursday "every person counts" sounds woke to me, what ever woke means ?
Why comment on things you know nothing about in a foreign country ?

Can you enlighten us were this takes place in Ireland ? because I find this hard to believe, unless you are referring to dissident republicans but there isn't 2000 of them ,and btw, these people want the war against England recommenced and with military operations, before any immigration stuff.

Plenty of seats still to be firmed up but at the moment this is a disaster for SF and Immigration has well and truly arrived as a policy for them.

MLMD has to go. Its as simple as that. She is a totally busted flush. IMHO Matt Carthy would be the next in line. Eoin O'Broin would be a disaster.

SF Mistakes:

1. Focusing too much on Israel/Gaza. Yes their voters care about it but they have bigger problems at home like house prices, cost of living etc..

2. Calling your own voters racist cos they don't want illegal immigrants/asylum seekers dumped in your locality in large numbers doesn't work.
Few of these AS are ending up in wealthy areas of Dublin and when tents are now popping up in wealthy areas of Dublin they are getting shifted quick.

it's complicated case, not as complicated as middle east thankfully, I think they will ride it out, but there are dissidents who hate sinn fein ironically more than brits, strange but true.

Racing Queen you do know Fianna Gael called out a far right party who took 500 votes from Sinn Fein In lough as racist on TV today and was corrected by presenter.I don't understand you're point on that.

Regarding tents or current international protection seekers, Sinn Fein are not in charge on this policy, locally or nationally

Sinn Fein has lost support in the 6 counties for not being more vocal on Gaza.

The Coalition has been stronger vocally on this issue in calling out Israel, IMO

As I said it's local elections, it's parochial, nohalmdun.

FF and FG dropped votes since last local elections Sinn Fein increased there vote, read into that what you want if punting. But they are facts no speculative headlines.
