Fianna Fáil, or the ‘Soldiers of Destiny’, is the ruling party of Ireland. The party formed in 1926, and consisted of former members of Sinn Féin that opposed the Anglo-Irish Treaty in the 1922 and 1923 General Elections. Fianna Fáil's nationalist economics and Conservative Catholic policies have allowed it to hold on to a majority in the Oireachtas since 1932.
