This chapter describes a number of pertinent features of Fianna Fáil. Fianna Fáil took up where the old Sinn Fein left off, with a greater degree of effectiveness. The chapter also discusses the strategies of Fianna Fáil for socio-economic development, the Labour Party's cautious advocacy of social reforms and appeals of Fianna Fáil to the working class. The Fianna Fáil propaganda in 1932 promised to end the reckless extravagance of the Free State Government. The sequence of events surrounding Fianna Fáil's Dail entrance and political developments from 1926–32 is also discussed.

Keywords:   Sinn Fein, Labour Party, Fianna Fáil, Free State Government, Dail, political development, social reform
