It's not a "snap election": it was predicted for months.

When the establishment Fine Gael and Fianna Fail parties condemn Sinn Fein over its historical links to the IRA one thing is missed. And that is that both Fine Gael and Fianna Fail were both formed by the IRA. Both parties emerged from a split in the IRA which led to the Irish Civi war, when the two sides of the IRA fought each other, and many atrocities occurred. In other words, all of the main political parties in Ireland have historical links to the IRA. These commentators would do well to read a basic Irish history book before presenting themselves as experts on the topic.

The majority of voters under 50 voted for Sinn Fein, not just younger voters. I don’t see how the popular vote can be ignored. If the people of Ireland are ignored, there will be trouble. The deprivation experienced by the middle class and working class of Ireland has been epic. The wealth divide generated by the centre right parties has hurt society- a true left government is what the people voted for. People are desperate for change because they won’t survive another 4/5 years of FG policies. Democracy must prevail

Love the way most media still try and blame Sinn Fein for all the deaths from the troubles!

What snap general election? The last one was 5 years ago and this one, by law, had to be called in the next four months... That's not a snap election...it's a constitutionally mandated election...

Both Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil were formed as political wings of a previous version of the IRA. The state was founded by what some people call "terrorists".

Sinn Féin having connections to Republicanism isn't exactly news to anyone in Ireland. The important point is that they have a social democratic agenda that includes continuing efforts to unify the country. FF and FG offered nothing but lip-service to unification and a neoliberal ideology that people are sick of.

It looks like Irish people are starting to vote for issues other than a civil war that happened a hundred years ago.
