éirígí: they’re not an intervention – they’re aiming for 0.3% at best

As we noted, at éirígí’s last Ard Fheis, they stated they would be making an ‘intervention’ in northern electoral politics.

I recently suggested 22 council areas dissenting republicans considering electoral intervention could look at.

Today, éirígí announced their candidates. A full two and it seems unlikely they will announce more.

Two candidates, across 582 seats. That’s contesting 0.3% of the game at council level

Some electoral ‘intervention’.
