At this point in time Ireland had seen many changes in its political landscape. The Invade UK Party had been created by Orangejuicemmm before the Presidential election that would see him impeached. On top of this The Green Party of Ireland and The Celtic League had only just been created. Under the instruction of Brian Boru The Labour Party had been renamed and structured as the Republican Socialist Party. If that weren't enough change, Fr0Fr0 had also just re-renamed his party The Irish Freedom Party after having renamed it The EPIC Party during his last term. Also controversial was irishbhoy1967's being elected PP of Independent Voices - he and the ICA were under heavy suspicion of PTOing and the use of multiple accounts following Orangejuicemmm's impeachment.

A few changes have taken place. After irishbhoy1967 won the PP election for Independent Voices he would eventually rename the party S.E.E.S. Ireland. He would often also change the name to different messages. Independent Voices, in part built around the idea of not having any positions or party stances, would also be mutated in that S.E.E.S. Ireland is listed as Far-Left, Authoritarian. One other change includes Saoirse changing their party logo, as seen above. A reduction in the number of party members took place, as followed similar population trends.

On December 7, 2010 the UK took over all of Ireland. All of Ireland's parties were destroyed. The three parties seen here were created after December 7 when Ireland regained its sovereignty. The Irish Union Party is a re-birth of the original IUP. Originally, what was seen here as Fenian Brotherhood, was called the Popular Liberation Front. The change from the PLF to FB was made on the 23 of December.

Many changes have taken place since the wipe. Several new parties have been created including the N.S.I.W.P which would later become the Independent Labour Party under MikeBane. This new Independent Labour Party is a communist independent party. Also new is the Costume Party and Cardboard Box Party. The Costume Party is an independent party and becomes popular among those who might formerly have been in Independent Voices. The Cardboard Box Party is also an independent party. This party's name comes from the joke from one election, that the candidates were so bad that citizens would rather vote for a cardboard box. Both the Costume Party and the Cardboard Box Party could be described as cynical and sarcastic in their attitudes, though not without positive intention.

The two major differences one may note, is that the total affiliated population of Ireland has decreased and also that Ireland's largest party, Sons of Eireann, has a new Party President: John Snuggles.

Major changes this week include several new Party Presidents. mirek12345 takes over from Ariovistus for a while, and Bassy takes over from MikeBane. orangejuicemmm also takes over for John Snuggles. Connell Rath has decided o rename the Cardboard Box Party to Mick Wallace for CP. Jacques Cousteau has taken over command of the Irish Union Party.

Most important at this time is the restructuring of the Costume Party into the Irish Independent Party by Marcus Suridius. This marks a clarification and solidification of the party as an independent political avenue.

The Fenian Brotherhood also adopts a new party logo.

A few differences are apparent. We can see here that the Irish Independent Party has grown as well as the Fenian Brotherhood. Sons of Eireann suffered from considerable loss of members, but is still the most popular party. Aside from these changes all other parties remain with similar numbers only deviating by 3 or 4 members. Also new is Eire Aonair, a newly formed political party that joined the scene on the 17th of March. In total there is a net gain in affiliated population. This is likely due to immigration more than anything.

A few essential changes have taken place. Eire Aonair has been annexed the the Bremen Clubhouse PTO party through the election of Goku Jones on April the 15th. Goku's election came uncontested when former party president Ian E Coleman failed to run in the elections. By default, Goku won and gained control of the party, despite having never been a member of the party prior to his election. Due to a glitch Goku never gained the PP power until April 18, but his first act was to rename the party the Bremen Clubhouse attracting several PTOers from Britain. Before the PP elections Eire Aonair had a record high 16 members. Through a mass propaganda mailing program, Goku was at one time able to bring the Bremen Clubhouse to a membership in the low 30s, but a counter mass mailing effort by the Irish Immigration Ministry, and then underground Eire Aonair, the Irish public was able to bring membership back down to 17. The letter that the Bremen Clubhouse had been sending out to the Irish public can be seen here. With the membership of the Bremen Clubhouse back down to 17, members of that party were unable to run for congress without moving to another party, since the Bremen Clubhouse was now the 6th most popular party in Ireland (outside of the required top 5).

Also on the 15th, Meleculus won the PP elections for the Mick Wallace for CP Party, and renamed it to The Epic Party[1].

After the elections many changes are made. Eire Aonair is once again a party as Ian E Coleman is elected uncontested as party president of The Bremen Clubhouse (formerly Eire Aonair to begin with). Another change is that Irish_Rebel_Reborn had taken over The Epic Party, and renamed it "Padraigs Party". This is because Irish_Rebel_Reborn is the rebirth of Padriag Pierce: an infamous rogue of Ireland. Marcus Suridius is elected to be president of the party that he created months ago Irish Independent Party. orangejuicemmm is the new party president of the Irish Union Party. Joe Hitman wins the election for party president of Independent Labour Party over former party president Bassy. Brian Boru remains the president of Sons of Eireann. Seanan is elected the new party president of the Fenian Brotherhood.

After changes to the military module and a number of foreign communist immigrants coming to Ireland to fight against the UK the Independent Labour Party and Ireland's political left see significant growth. Both the ILP and Sons of Eireann do well during this time. Many parties also see new leadership. Padraigs Party is also replaced when Nithraldur wins the party elections and decides to re-invent the party.

At this time in Ireland political party history, the left continues to thrive with both the Independent Labour Party and the Sons of Eireann leading the membership numbers. Following party president elections on the 15th, the Irish Independent Party (with JohnSmith 2K9 replacing John Gormley), Irish Union Party (with Bhane replacing June's CP of Ireland Irasian), and Eire Aonair (with D-Glennon replacing Ian E Coleman), all see new leaders elected. Both Eire Aonair and Fenian Brotherhood see a significant drop in membership pushing them both out of top 5 positions. Also newly created by irishbhoy1967 is the Nationalist Party of Ireland which represents itself as a Far-right, Authoritarian party.

Since the last party elections, once again, a lot has changed. While the left still dominates in membership numbers, both the top two left parties have seen a drop in membership. Just behind the Independent Labour Party and Sons of Eireann, two Center, Libertarian parties, Irish Independent Party and Eire Aonair, see membership in the mid to high twenties. Following the party president elections, all parties elect the same leaders except for the first place Independent Labour Party which elects Winston Hope Smith to pick up where Patrick O'leary had left off. Winston Hope Smith published an article thanking his party for electing him.
