  • Fianna Fáil, also known as Fianna Fáil, The Republican Party, is a centrist to centre-right and conservative political party in the Republic of Ireland. Originally an Irish republican party, it was founded on 23 March 1926 after a split in Sinn Féin on the issue of abstentionism. Fianna Fáil's name is traditionally translated into English as Soldiers of Destiny, although a more accurate rendition would be Warriors of Fál. Historically, Fianna Fáil has been seen as to the left of Fine Gael and to the right of Sinn Féin and the Labour Party and is generally seen as a classic "catch all" populist party - representing a broad range of people from all social classes. Fianna Fáil has led governments including parties of the centre-left and of the centre-right. It has been led by Micheál Martin since January 2011. From the formation of the first Fianna Fáil government on 9 March 1932 until the election of 2011, the party was in power for 61 of 79 years. Its longest continuous period in office was 15 years and 11 months. Its single longest period out of office, in that time, has been 4 years and 4 months. Seven of the party's eight leaders have served as Taoiseach.
