The 1996 Refusal of Bail referendum was an uncontroversial affair which saw John Bruton's Fine Gael/Labour coalition win an easy victory on an issue the "law and order party" counted as part of its ongoing measures against crime in Ireland.




There are now State of the Parties pages for the Northern Ireland Assembly and Northern Ireland's UK House of Commons seats.




The Reform Alliance are a new political movement made up of expelled Fine Gael members which may or may not become a new political party. Are any of your representatives members?





The Government failed to convince the electorate on the Abolition of the Seanad, resulting in a "wallop" for Enda Kenny's coalition, though the Court of Appeals referendum was passed with a comfortable margin.





The 1865 UK general election in Ireland saw the Whigs - now calling themselves the Liberal Party - keeping power, with that party winning more widespread support in Ireland than the Conservatives. The Tories did however keep their stronghold in Ulster.
