"Eire Nua: A New Beginning" Book Launch

 

The National Irish Freedom Committee (NIFC) is proud to announce the launch of a new book titled "Eire Nua: A New Beginning" that offers a new perspective that represents the NIFC's input to the original Eire Nua document authored by Ruari O'Bradaigh and Daithi O'Connell in the 1960s.

 

For those not familiar with Eire Nua the following abstract may be helpful in understanding its intent.

The concept on which Eire Nua is based is that of a unitary federation of the four historic provinces of Ireland that would include all of Ireland's 32 counties under the coordination of a national parliament. This construct would foster a true democracy and eliminate the causes for conflict, such as Ireland has experienced for the past eight hundred years. The Eire Nua constitution with its Charter of Rights would guarantee all of Ireland's people true freedom, a home for its children, and a new beginning.

 

The aforementioned authors acknowledged and understood that the construct of the final Eire Nua document would include input from various stakeholders including the people of all traditions and geographical identities in Ireland. In their wisdom they did not exclude input from the Irish Diaspora who have over the centuries remained engaged in Ireland’s struggle for liberty and justice and for the survival and preservation of its unique cultural identity.

 

In the context of that understanding the NIFC retained the services of Dominick Bruno to produce and publish a book that would include a detailed description of how Eire Nua would be construed and implemented from an Irish-American perspective.

 

In addition to the above requirement the book includes an historic account of the origins of Eire Nua, essays describing the merits of Eire Nua's founding principles, relevant historic Irish documents, an Eire Nua position paper, a bibliography, and a detailed account of the Eire Nua Campaign here in America since the 1960's.

 

The NIFC acknowledges the contributions of Tomas agus Miceal Ó Coisdealba whose Eire Nua letters published in the 1990’s constituted the basis for the book.

 

The NIFC also acknowledged the contribution of Dominick Bruno who produced and edited the book and Mathew Costello who co-edited the book.

I think parts of the Eire Nua document are very good and would ideal for Ireland. The document tells about freedom for everyone. But my main concern would be, what about freedom from exploitation? There can never be true freedom while capitalism still exists.

 

This is true. Well Éire Nua just provides for a new political framework. From here a new economic model can be built around it. Saol Nua - A New Way of Life outlines this. It places much emphasis on strengthening local economies and bringing Ireland's vast resources under public ownership.

I would agree and support with most of whats in the Eire Nua and Saol Nua documents. But my main problem with the documents is that capitalism would still exists and there for so would exploitation.

Sadly Ireland is a hub of imperial and capitalist interests for the minute. Certainly the aim of Sinn Féin Poblachtach long term is to eradicated this, but a realistic step by step process will need to be initiated and this is the basis and aim also of the Éire Nua and Saol Nua proposals. Around a new political framework (EN) a new economic model (SN) can come to full realisation, once in progress then too can we see the nationalisation of key national and natural resources. The benefits will need to be apparent for the people.

 

The people in our country are so subsumed by ignorance into accepting the privatisation of our countries key industries and resources that it will be a long process and also an educational one but one which will need militancy to expel the current institutions.
