Details: Fianna Fail was once a proud, idealistic and disciplined party whose first aim was to secure the unity and independence of Ireland as a Republic . Has this aim become merely a catch-cry or has it become so important as an aim in itself that it is seen as a necessary permanent feature of Fianna Fail policy because the accomplishment of the aim, if achieved, would make the sub-title The Republican Party obsolete? Having secured the removal of the government subservient to the foreign master , have Fianna Fail now decided that they are under contract with the enemy to maintain his overlordship in Northern Ireland? Have Fianna Fail rejected the idea that Partition is perhaps the gravest injury one nation can inflict on another ? Has the loss of Fianna Fail s Republican principles been replaced by selfish materialism Has Fianna Fail s revered principle of unconditional loyalty to an individual rather than to a national policy made it a party of people conditioned to act only as automatons and not to think for themselves? Has there been a complete reversal of the policies on which Fianna Fail was founded and if so is disintegration the only future ahead for the party? Kevin Boland was first elected a TD in 1957. He served as Minister for Defence, Minister for Social Welfare and Minister for Local Government before resigning from the Fianna Fail party in November 1970. Cover design: Syd Bluett
