    Default Fianna Fáil In The 6 Counties

    Can anyone shed light on what the story is with Fianna Fáil in the North? They opened their first party offices in Armagh a few months back, but have yet to announce any plans to run candidates in next years Stormont elections.

    Will we see them contesting elections any time soon? And if so will they be launching a 6 county-specific manifesto?

    More chance of Gary Glitter being Minister for Education in Northern Ireland then Fianna Fail getting a vote or mandate accross the border.

    They have single handedly set unification of this Island back 100 years and done more to support the Union with Great Britain then any Unionist party could ever hope for

    Fianna Fail going to head up north and sell the idea that they are a repulican party with policies that merits voting for.
    The shower of bastar-ds crippled the economy, and has threatend our soverignty, and has put the notion of a united Ireland, sitting with pre-historic artifacts in some museum.

    De Valera was elected several times to Stormont - I think it was 3 times - and I think they had councillors elected in Border areas as well - in the 30s.

    Yeh, and Ulster University. They opened an official FF office in Crossmaglen though in July. But yet theres been no announcement made on whether they'll be running candidates in elections.

    Are they holding off to see if Sinn Féin come out the largest party? Or is it all just tokenism?

    It just seems odd why its taken them so long to establish there.
