    On the 8th of February 2020 a new government will be elected in the Republic of Ireland. I know how powerful the prayers of forum members are and I ask you to pray for these candidates who are pro-life and Christian. They are getting no coverage in the Irish media. Ireland really needs to get more of these elected or else I believe complete destruction is coming next. Please pray for these candidates and for Ireland, thanks.

    Above candidates all voted against having an abortion referendum. Please pray for them.

    Gemma O'Doherty has courage like no other and constantly puts her life at risk coming up against Ireland's greatest evils, please pray for Gemma.

    John Waters has lost his career as a leading journalist because of his conservative views, he is a great man, please pray for John.

    Ben Gilroy and Hermann Kelly. Ben was imprisoned last year for defending people who were evicted from their homes. Hermann was once editor of the Irish Catholic and is now the main driving force to get Ireland out of Europe, please pray for Ben and Hermann.

    Peadar Tobin was expelled from one of the main political parties for voting against the inhumane abortion bill enacted last year. Please pray for Peadar.

    A new party called the National Party and Christian, pro-life and anti-globalist, they need your prayers, please pray for them.

    These candidates also need your prayers:

    If you think of any other candidates who we should pray for please post them here thanks. God Bless.

    The leader of the Irish Freedom Party is running in Tipperary. They are described as eurosceptic and 'right-wing'. Does anyone know any more about them?

    As for Fine Gael. It looks like the electorate is about to exercise its right to choose and will abort this government.

    I believe he is a good guy. Hermann Kelly comes across in Interview as a devout Catholic. He was or maybe still is an editor at the Irish Catholic. If I lived in Tipp I would give him a No. 1 vote. They are very much pro-life. They are very much pro 32 county Ireland. And very much for getting out of Europe.

    Thank you, that's all I need to know. I have some more time to research them now because God has intervened in the Tipperary election, calling one of the candidates to Judgement.

    I might have been slightly confused as I was under the impression that Dolores Cahill, the Tipp candidate, is the leader. Anyway, Kelly's credentials sound impeccable.

    While having no time whatsoever for Sinn Fein I find nauseating the hypocrisy of the political establishment attempting to damage Sinn Fein's prospects by highlighting their connections to violence. Any party that supports abortion has no right to place themselves on the moral high ground. They have all joined the ranks of killers. This includes every mainstream party in Ireland.

    One member of this household was so irritated by RTE''s hammering the IRA''s violent past into Mary Lou McDonald tonight that he threatened to vote Sinn Fein just to annoy them.

    But it won't happen. He's pro life.

    FF and FG must be worried though when they are bringing up such a horrific murder.

    I'll be voting a pro life independent.

    That seems like over-reaction from RTE, reminiscent of Gay Byrne's counter-productive hatchet-job upon Gerry Adams years ago. That was one of the single biggest incidents in making SF tolerable.

    More nonsense is Mairead McGuinness' hyperbolic announcement that she has visited Auschwitz and this should remind us to be 'very careful of our democracy'. This, after her party has transformed every public hospital in the country into a potential death-camp.

    I'm also voting independent pro life. Sadly we really have no choice as all the parties that will have the potential to form a government are pro abortion. All we can do is vote as a protest. I think that's why Sinn Féin are getting a bounce. Shame they are pro abortion. The whole political landscape is depressing.

    Although he is not pro-life, Peter Casey revealed a nascent hunger for an alternative viewpoint in the last presidential election. There are a few small parties running this week with similar policies, all of which seem to be convincingly pro-life. Let's hope that they can sow a few seeds for future growth.

    Unfortunately, Ireland is very immature and mimetic when it comes to politics. Most of the electorate, who fill perfectly the role of 'useful idiots', are deep into their 'progressive' (that's the word many seem to like to use, rather than 'liberal', in my experience) phase and will remain so until they realise that it's no longer the fashion abroad, a shift which is slowly developing and will most emphatically accelerate when Salvini regains power in Italy. Please God, globalist secularism will finally be rejected in Europe and America (where President Trump is doing a fine job); and Ireland, as usual, will be the last to realise this. When this development eventually happens, we will of course be the most enthusiastic supporters in the world ever. Maybe that's Ireland's fatal flaw, 'enthusiasm'. We don't think deeply, but let our emotions carry us away.

    So true. The Irish electorate are hopelessly brainwashed. Yesterday I was speaking to a lady who is decidedly pro life. I asked her if she was impressed with President Trumps Pro life stance in his address to Congress. She went on and on about what a crook he was. There was no reasoning with her. CNN and Irish Media have rented space in her head and she can't think beyond that.
    I think the media in Ireland has complete control of the narrative and the electorate for the most part are incapable of seeing beyond that

    Pointless defending Trump in Ireland. Ask me how I know. They swallow the media narrative completely. First the Church told them what to think, then the media told them they were stupid and backward for letting the Church tell them what to do so now they let the media tell them instead.

    I'm so disillusioned with being Irish.
