To all members and supporters of the National Party, I wish each of you a happy Christmas.

Many of us are looking forward to spending time with family, enjoying ourselves, and relaxing. But for many Irish families, this Christmas season will not be a happy occasion. People are struggling due to rising fuel prices, insecurity about housing, and an overall lack of optimism about what the future holds.

To compound all this, our government has seen fit to make the Irish people into second class citizens in our own country. This year they have ramped up Ireland’s mass-immigration policy to unprecedented levels which only compare with the historical plantations ordered by English monarchs to ethnically cleanse our country.

Due to the insane green policies being pursued by this government, most of us are skimping in order to even afford to heat our homes. Peat briquettes are now a precious commodity. Meanwhile, the government has shut down power stations like Shannonbridge and Lanesborough – actions which have crippled our potential to ever be energy independent. The only thing becoming cheaper in Ireland are the excuses from our political class.

Throughout 2023 we have been endlessly lectured to by the government, the so-called opposition, and international bodies – none of whom have the interests of the Irish people at heart. But there is a rising tide of opposition to the current regime. A tectonic shift is happening below the surface of Irish politics.

For many people, the horrendous attack on Irish children by a “guest” in our country was a step too far. In the aftermath of this horrific crime, an opinion poll was published which showed a rise in support for political parties in the “Other” category to 8% (among the category of 18–34-year-olds). The Sunday Business Post explained this can be read as “an opening for more far-right parties, of which there are early signs of some ground gained in today’s poll”, and explicitly named the National Party as such a party gaining support.

There’s a lot coming up in the new year, with Ireland certain to hold European and local elections in June, and the possibility of a snap general election at the drop of a hat. Already we’ve seen the mainstream parties trying to stop the bleeding of their support by engaging in the softest possible “anti-immigration” messages. But it’s too little, too late. Everyone knows where these parties stand; their card has been marked. These parties stand for every anti-Irish cause imaginable, they’re national traitors and everyone knows it.

Christmas is a time of goodwill, for wishing peace on Earth to all men and women. Let’s leave bitterness and distractions in the past. In 2024, the nationalist movement must co-operate and get our house in order. It’s important that the Irish people, when they vote, have a real alternative.

On behalf of the National Party and my colleagues I wish you a very blessed Christmas and Happy New Year. Nollaig Shona Daoibh go Léir.

With best wishes,
