Podcast -The Community Democrats of Ireland October 8, 2020

This is the story of the short lived Community Democrats of Ireland who contested the 1979 European Elections.

They had a series of self inflicted mishaps during their short lifetime which contributed to them not being a success. They are a lesson in what not to do if you found a new party.

Interview with Christopher Morris of the ‘Community Democrats of Ireland’- 1979 European Elections October 23, 2010

The Community Democrats of Ireland are a party I know little about. There is little or nothing on them online. They fielded 3 candidates in the 1979 European Elections. (
The three were, Christopher Morris in Conaught Ulster, Kevin Clear in Dublin and Michael B Crowe in Munster. All polled poorly.
The below is an interview with Christopher Morris, the party candidate in Connaught Ulster. He mentions the Liberals standing in Northern Ireland. Presumably that was James Murray who also polled poorly.
The Clipping is taken from the wonderful Galway Advertiser Site.
