Spring 2011 ‘Dóchas’ Newsletter from the Christian Solidarity Party July 15, 2011


From Spring 2011 ‘Dóchas’ a Newsletter from the Christian Solidarity Party. I’ve uploaded it in pdf HERE or click on the image below to launch.

A few quotes from the newsletter.

On that note Daire Fitsgerald, our Candidate in the most liberal constituency in the country got 434 first preferences, did very well on the RTÉ Frontline programme and I believe his campaign in that constituency was instrumental in preventing Ivana Bacik from getting elected.

For the first time this century our party’s vote has not fallen, it has risen. Not only has it risen beyond the vote received in the 2007 general election, it has risen beyond the percentage of the vote received when the pro-life vote collapsed in 2002. Over-all our vote increased by more than 23%. For every 4 votes we received in 2007 we received almost 5 in 2011. Our share of the contested vote was even more impressive with an increase of 30% from 0.42% of the vote to 0.55%.
