Ógra Shinn Féin is the youth wing of Ireland's largest political party, Sinn Féin. Our politics and activism are based around five key principles: Republicanism, Socialism, Feminism, Environmentalism and Internationalism.


"Our revenge will be the laughter of our children" - Bobby Sands Óglach na hEireann


"We must take no steps backwards; our steps must be onward. For if we don't, the martyrs that died for you, for me, for this country, will hunt us forever" - Máire Drumm Cumman na mBan, iar-leaschaothaoirleach Shinn Féin 


Sinn Féin D'Arcy Mellows Cumann is a political society at Ollscoil Na Gaillimhe, affiliated to Ógra Shinn Féin - the youth wing of Sinn Féin. Sinn Féin is the largest all-Ireland political party, with representatives in every county in Ireland. We are an Irish Republican party, working on the basis of creating a 32 county socialist Irish Republic.

We are committed to pursuing a progressive republican movement within Ollscoil na Gaillimhe; campaigning on issues such as the illegal oppression of the Palestinian people, homelessness, mental health, feminism, worker's rights, presidential voting rights and climate action.

 Sinn Féin Ollscoil na Gaillimhe believe in the protection of workers rights, LGBT rights, immigrant rights, the reunification of Ireland, international solidarity (Palestine, Catalunya, Basque country etc.), a socialist economy, anti-racism, anti-fascism, environmentalism and feminism. 

Indeed, throughout the years, we have campaigned for an end to the direct provision system, the boycott of Israel, the introduction of same sex marriage, and currently are campaigning for Irish women's reproductive rights to be respected through a complete repeal of the 8th amendment from the constitution. We feel Ireland, north and south, need radical socialist politics in order for Irish people to gain equality in all aspects of their lives. Moreover, we feel that the actions of Irish right-wing governments have been overwhelmingly destructive to our nation both economically and socially.

For Ógra Shinn Féin, fairness to all people and quality of life for our citizens are demands that we will not capitulate on and are goals that we will work tirelessly towards in every aspect of our daily business.

Meetings

We notify our members of meetings and events through your college email, and we usually try to have meetings or events once a week. New members will have the opportunity to be elected to the Cumman's Officer Board at our AGM in September, a week after our stall at societies day.
