Other information

Other information:
  • Family Solidarity: An Irish voluntary lay organization founded over 20 years ago to promote the interests of the family in Ireland.
  • Membership: at present about 2,200 members

Our activities:

  • A newsletter published 5/6 times a year mailed to members and available on our website
  • Family Solidarity is one of a number of organisations entitled to make a pre-budget submission each year to the Minister of Social and Family Affairs. In 2006 our submission called for
  • a reduction in the penal level of Stamp Duty paid by Irish families on moving house and the removal of the  “tax individualization “ system which penalises families where one parent does not go out to paid work. We were unsuccessful.
  • We work with and encourage other Christian groups such as the Pro-Life Movement, Youth 2000, Youth Defence, and the Christian Solidarity Party which is the only Irish political party committed to Christian principles
  • We are fully behind the work of the Irish M.E.P
  • Kathy Sinnott in her opposition to embryo research
  • Family Solidarity is using its resources to support the efforts of a young man, Ronan Mullen to be elected to and provide a Christian voice in the Irish parliamentary upper house, the Senate
  • Members of our National Executive are presently part of an initiative funded by the Knights of Saint Columbanus to find out, by the professional use of focus groups why Irish people do or do not support Christian marriage and to find effective ways to convince people that Christian marriage is the only basis for a healthy society
