Ad from The Christian Solidarity Party urging voters in Meath East to vote for Ben Gilroy of Direct Democracy Ireland. April 12, 2013


An interesting ad in the April edition of Alive! from The Christian Solidarity Party asking voters to vote for Ben Gilroy of Direct Democracy Ireland.

In the 2011 General Election Jane Murphy of The Christian Solidarity Party in Dublin South also advertised Direct Democracy Ireland on her leaflet.

Richard Greene is the leader of the Christain Solidarity Party. A former Green Party Councillor he was involved in a party Muintir na hÉireann and has run as an Independent Pro Life candidate also.

DDI would like to make it clear that the CSP is a COMPLETE separate organisation with COMPLETE separate people running it. Separate religious agenda – where DDI has complete none – TOTALLY SEPARATE people running it’s rules and constitution and separate founders. Separate headquarters and again separate head-office location.

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%.

 

Christian Solidarity Party “Born in the 90s for the next Millennium” -1996 leaflet March 29, 2011


A 1996 leaflet from the Christian Solidarity Party with the title “Born in the 90s for the next Millennium”.
The leaflet attacks the Rainbow government, The Democratic Left, Fine Gael, Fianna Fail, Labour and the PDs. All of which had been in government at some stage over the previous ten years.

“The CSP question and will continue to question how Ireland has benefited from the raft of jaded ideologically driven anti-social and anti-family legislation which the political parties , in and out of office, have rail roaded through the houses of the Oireachtas”

The CSP fielded 8 candidates in the 1997 General Election of which 5 polled over 1,000 votes.
