At a packed AGM which proved the old Renua was underselling itself, the new Renua finally confounded its mainstream critics and found a focus and identity. The Irish Identity and the Irish People – a niche that should be the mainstream, which could drive Renua into the limelight!
At the AGM held in the Maldron Hotel, Renua discovered that the addition of “Nation State” to its “Six Pillars” in their constitution was more popular than they expected, as many had to crowd standing into the back of the room.
This change to their steering document was accompanied by the announcement of 20 Candidates for the Local Elections in May 2019, with many more to come as they continue their recruitment drive. They had already previously announced an MEP candidate. Leader John Leahy asked members present to get people interested in running in local elections to contact them.
Members also voted on a new Chairman and Treasurer with the newly elected Chairperson Neil O Mahony from Galway East winning with 75% of the vote and being welcomed with thunderous applause. Michael Farrington from Mayo was elected as treasurer.
In his speech the Leader John Leahy emphasized Renua will not compromise on the pro-life issue like Peader Tobin’s newly founded Aontú party. Tobin will not be enforcing the whip and will allow pro choice people into his party which ironically was launched specifically because Sinn Fein forbid its members from voting pro life.
Leahy went on to assert that Renua now has an answer to the critical mainstream media which claimed they did not have a focus, Renua now stand clearly for the Irish people in an Irish Nation State. As far as the EU is concerned, Renua does not advocate “Irexit”, but rather to reform the EU as a family of European nation states and will put a stop to any further integration.
Other priorities stated were Law and Order, Homelessness, Tax Reform, Stopping Mass Immigration in favour of Skills based Immigration and reigning in the rampant Banksters…
