Respect the People's Will -
the Lisbon Treaty
Irish people have spoken. The Lisbon Treaty is dead. A second
referendum is not an option. The Irish government must now respect the
will of the Irish people and ensure that it negotiates a better deal
for Irleand and for Europe.

document "A Better Deal for Ireland and the EU" which sets out the

British warships out of Cork
regularly receives visits from British warships, many of which
have been involved in supporting British military operations in Iraq
and Afghanistan. Sinn Fein believes that so long as Britain continues
to occupy a part of our national territory, and is engaged in military
adventures in other parts of the world, there should be no welcome for
any element of its military machine in Cork.

call for the City Council to refuse to extend any welcome to British

British warships using their facilities

the Gas Giveaway -
Campaign to Protect Ireland's Natural Resources
a time when Ireland
imports 85% of its energy needs, the government has handed the Corrib
Gas Field, worth an estimated €90 billion, to a private consortium to
develop. There will be no royalties, no state share in the gas
find, and only a minimal tax take. Local people in Mayo are also
bitterly opposed to the development on health and safety grounds.
