Early views[edit]

Do you guys think it's on-mission to add how Sinn Féin were originally Monarchists? In 1916 they were a small party which wanted the UK to transform into a personal union similar to Austria-Hungary, with Ireland and Great Britain each having a King/Queen, with one being dominant. When the Easter Rising was mistakenly blamed on Sinn Féin in newspapers, republican nationalists overwhelmed the party membership and completely transformed party policy.-- Forerunner (talk) 22:48, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

Not sure how any of this makes any sense[edit]

This party is considered as a nationalist party but is for migrant's rights. Aren't nationalists opposed to immigration ? Diacelium (talk) 13:26, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

There is always the odd exception. I suppose these two things are not mutually exclusive. One could argue that immigration makes a nation stronger in some respects. (talk) 15:45, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
I'm a year late here, but it's because they're civic nationalists and not ethnic nationalists.'Legionwhat do you want from me 18:43, 18 January 2018 (UTC)
