The Irish Left Archive hopes to collate first-hand political reminiscences or observations from people involved in Irish Left political activity over the years. We'd be grateful to anyone who has been involved in political parties, campaigns or activism who would like to provide us an account of their personal experience.

We are interested in hearing from people who are or have been involved in Left politics or campaigning at any level.

For example, accounts might include:

  • What first led you to political activism
  • Experience of a particular referendum or election
  • Being a member of a particular party or group

If you'd prefer not to include your real name, please feel free to use a pseudonym here.

Your email address will not be made public, and will only be visible to the site administrators.

If no topics suit your account, please select 'Other'. You can then also optionally suggest a new topic.

If your account relates to a particular organisation, election, referendum or publication, please let us know.
Type in the box below to see suggestions, and click any relevant entries to link them.

    Please make sure you are happy for what you've written to be visible on our website before sending.
