Democratic Partnership was a group made up of Peace People, Peace Activists , Trade Unionists and ex Northern Ireland Labour Party members. They contested the 1996 Northern Ireland Forum Elections. This episode also covers the Northern Ireland Forum electoral system, which was unique and as far as I know hasn't been used since.
  1. Democratic Partnership

Founded in 1985 , The Community Party contested the 1985 Local Elections for Letterkenny UDC and had a Councillor elected. This episode also covers the debate around slot machines in Donegal in that period.

 

The Community Party -Letterkenny UDC 1985 September 24, 2009


I know nothing about this Party or its policies. Sean Maloney later joined the Labour Party and then Fine Gael.

Letterkenny has another small party these days represented on the council “The Letterkenny Residents Party” which I have no literature for but would love to get some. I gather they may be a break away from The Socialist Party.
