Our Core Principles

RENUA believes that the objective of Government is to keep the Irish State and its people safe and secure, to ensure that the institutions of the State are well designed, well run and serve the interests of the Irish nation as a whole and not just an elite.

RENUA's core beliefs are in the nation state, small government, free enterprise, low taxes, property ownership, equal opportunities, law and order, pro-life, pro-family, free speech and the free exchange of ideas. These are encapsulated in the party's six core principles (or pillars) below.


For far too long the Irish Justice system has pushed the victims of crime and their families to the side in the rush to ‘understand’ and be fair to the criminal. RENUA will end that practice and will put the victims of crime and their families at the centre of our criminal justice system.


RENUA believes in putting the taxpayer first by: focusing on reducing taxes; respecting every Euro of taxpayers’ money; highlighting and eliminating wasteful expenditure of taxpayers’ hard-earned cash.


Ireland is home to 250,000 Irish Small-Medium Enterprises (SMEs) employing over a million people. While Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) receives a lot of attention, RENUA believes that it is necessary for the Government to focus on measures to help our home-grown, Irish-owned enterprises to grow and prosper.


RENUA believes in the dignity of every human being. We believe that the right to life is the most fundamental right of all and the right from which all other human rights flow. We believe that the family is the single greatest unit for the nurturing and development of children. The family unit is under constant attack from the ‘Progressive Left’ however RENUA will protect and defend traditional family values.


RENUA believes that social cohesion is the willingness of all of us in society to cooperate with each other in order to be safe, secure and prosper together. We need to create a better future for all the people, our families and our communities. In making social cohesion a pillar RENUA is proposing a transformative society that will raise the living standards and quality of life for everyone.

RENUA believes that when the institutions of the State are trustworthy, when they are seen to ensure the welfare of all of the people, when there is equality of opportunity to get ahead, regardless of age, ability, gender or social status, then social cohesion will happen. It will become the glue that will hold the nation together. All of this has implications for health, education, prosperity and the environment.


RENUA Ireland believes in the nation state and will defend Ireland’s sovereignty. RENUA will place Ireland’s interest first against all others. We are against further integration of the EU and believe strongly that the EU works best when member countries are recognised fully as sovereign nations coming together voluntarily to promote economic co-operation rather than as a stepping stone to a federal Europe.
