(p.1) I Fianna Fáil and Irish Political Studies
The Making of Fianna Fáil Power in Ireland 1923–1948


Oxford University Press

Fianna Fáil has held governmental office for almost two-thirds of the life of independent Irish state, and has been able to draw support from all social strata conveying the impression that it is politically immune to the negative effects of social conflict. This chapter focuses on the specific role of Fianna Fáil and its involvement with Irish society. It discusses the ‘personalist’ political culture argument, the party system approach, and the dilemma of the nationalist left.

Keywords:   Fianna Fáil, Irish society, political culture, party system, nationalist left, Irish politics
