For over 40 years the Green Party has been taking action to protect our environment, address the climate crisis, strengthen communities and create a more equal Ireland.
The Green Party is a grassroots, collaborative organisation working to progress climate action and environmental protection, support our communities and secure a more equal Ireland. Over the last 40 years, we have been working both in opposition and in government to drive change and deliver a just transition that protects our natural world and brings a fairer economic model for everyone.
Our organisation on the island has 12 TDs, 4 Senators, 2 MEPs, 45 Councillors, 50 Local Area Reps and almost 4000 members. We are creating an Ireland of warmer homes, increased employment, and healthier families. An Ireland where it is safe for children to walk and cycle to school and where public transport is frequent, affordable, and reliable. An Ireland with homes built near public services so we can enjoy vibrant town centres. An Ireland where food production is in harmony with nature, where our rivers are pristine again and the air we breathe is clean and pure. Our Green voices are in the room, at the decision making table, where we need to be.
In Ireland, the Green Party (then known as the Ecology Party of Ireland) was officially formed on the 3rd of December 1981 by a group of people with a long-term vision for an Ireland that protected and enhanced our island’s natural environment, heritage, biodiversity and communities.
