Aontú is Ireland’s Fastest Growing Political Movement
Aontú is the new 32 county all-Ireland Republican party, dedicated to protecting life, Irish reunification and economic justice for all. In just three months we have held public meetings in every county in Ireland. 5,000 people have attended our public meetings, hundreds of people are joining our party every week, new Cumann are forming practically every night. At the latest count, there are 60 new Aontú Cumann functioning throughout Ireland.
Elected reps, with strong backbones, are leaving other political parties and declaring for us. We are currently selecting candidates throughout the country. There is no time left for sitting on the fence, complaining and navel gazing. Are you ready to join with us and take action now?

The Irish political system is radically broken
In Ireland the vast majority of elected representatives put a finger in the air to check which way the political wind is blowing. They have one eye on their leaders – seeking brownie points – and another eye keeping their seat safe. If elected reps shut up and do as they’re told, they are promoted; if they stand up for what they believe in, they are demoted. No wonder we have the political class we have. No wonder a half a billion euro is being buried in a hole under the National Children’s Hospital and that Stormont is in stalemate.
Throughout Ireland, many people are now afraid to say what they feel, many are afraid to respectfully engage on a range of different topics. Many feel there is a new censorship and a new political correctness in Ireland, that opposition to the establishment is being deleted.
Respectful opposition is not the enemy. Respectful opposition is a critical element of a functional democracy. Aontú will have the backbone to stand up, without fear, for you.
