Educate that you may be free

Women in an Ireland of Equals

Women are the largest group of those who have been excluded from the benefits of the Celtic Tiger economy. Households headed by lone parents and by older women remain at high risk of poverty and structural inequalities continue to trap many women in low paid, part-time employment. Sinn Féin is committed to Building an Ireland of Equals. Read full document

Housing for all - a basic right

Sinn Féin believes that the right to shelter, to affordable quality accommodation is a basic inalienable right. Social policy should be centred on delivering this basic right. Legislation should promote and safeguard the entitlements of tenants and home buyers rather than the rights of property speculators exploiting people's essential needs. Read full document

Irish Language

The potential for the development of the arts, cultural and leisure sectors in Ireland is immense. Recent political developments, particularly of an all-island nature, could be underpinned by the inclusive and unique scope of Irish arts and culture. Furthermore, a more integrated, imaginative and innovative arts and culture policy could open up markets which generate indigenous business and craft sectors and also serve as a dynamic to reinvigorate Irish culture in general.

Securing a future for farming and rural Ireland

There is a pressing need to formulate a strategy on farming and the wider issue of rural development. Such a strategy needs to be built up and developed by the communities directly affected by rural under-development. We believe that its core objective should be to break the cumulative cycle that starts with population decline, leading to a reduced demand for services, which leads to fewer employment opportunities and ultimately migration out of rural areas.

This encompasses equality for all, irrespective of race, age, marital or family status, sexual orientation, physical or mental capacities, ethnicity, social origin, political or religious affiliations, or membership of the Travelling Community.
