Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael should merge – Ó Snodaigh

24 October, 2010 - by Aengus Ó Snodaigh TD


Sinn Féin TD Aengus Ó Snodaigh has welcomed a Tweet from Fianna Fáil TD Chris Andrews which suggests a merger of Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael would make sense.

Deputy Ó Snodaigh said such a merger would bring about a real left right divide in Irish politics and give the people a real choice based on policies rather than personalities.

Speaking today Deputy Ó Snodaigh said:

“Chris Andrews clearly sees the writing on the wall for his party but his suggestion that a merger with Fine Gael makes sense is on the money.

“A merger between Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael would bring about a real left right divide in Irish politics and give the people a real choice based on policies rather than personalities.

“For too long politics in Ireland has been based on personality rather than policy. There is little or no policy difference between Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael yet these two parties between them have held power in Ireland since the establishment of the state.

“Hopefully one day soon they will be of one merged party on the opposition benches in the Dáil.” ENDS
