Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Mildly left of centre, social democratic, state interventionist in housing, education and healthcare. Will be careful not to scare away MNCs specially with Ireland's corporate tax advantage diminishing. Redistributive in taxation/social welfare benefits. Perhaps surprising socially conservative -won't be any further human rights reforms. It's Northern base is quite conservative Catholic (relative to the rest of the country). (Fundamentalist Protestants won't have any problem with that).

All in all a big bogeyman who doesn't want to scare anyone. Ireland's politics and political system is biased towards consensual, cooperative policies and practices - as long as the professional elite get their cut.
