‘Piss or get off the pot’

Dissenting republicanism (can there really be any other sort?) decided not to put any candidates forward in the European elections north or south. In the 26 county council elections only a few candidates from RSF were willing to place themselves before the electorate. At their Ard Fheis éirígí have opened the door to future electoralism with a paper endorsing tactical participation and changes to their constitution that permit taking council seats and even seats in Leinster House but firmly ruling out taking Westminster or Stormont seats if ever successful. It remains to be seen if they ever front up and put themselves before the voters. I should also note the IRSP have declared their intention to put forward candidates in future 6 county council elections (can‘t find a link).
