Welcome to the official page of the Con Colbert Cumann. We are the Youth Wing of Fianna Fáil the Republican Party (Ógra Fianna Fáil) in U.L. Like our Facebook page to keep up to date! https://www.facebook.com/ulogra?fref=nf SEMESTER 1 EVENTS ARE NOW FINISHED :( However...the national Ogra Fianna Fail Christmas Party is coming up soon, details pending. The first event of Semester 2 will be a Dail Trip... pencilled in for Wednesday 31 January :) Viewing this on your mobile? Scroll to bottom to request membership! Highlight events of the academic year include, national and regional conferences, gaelic football tournament, summer school, workshops, debates, trips to Leinster House, Stormont Castle and the Ard Fheis. We are always open to new ideas for events! While we are affiliated with the senior Fianna Fáil party, most of our society members are not registered members of the senior party. We do in an overall sense believe in the ideals of the Fianna Fáil party and come election time play an important role working alongside our local area elected representatives! The backgrounds of Ogra members are incredibly diverse. Even within our own society we have undergraduate, postgraduate and international students from a wide range of degree programmes from business, teaching, politics, law, physiotherapy and a variety of other arts and science programmes. At our weekly meetings, the cumann gives its members a unique opportunity to discuss current political issues with an emphasis on what affects us as students in our daily lives. We have done and will continue to submit policies to the government on issues of interest to the members of the cumann. Ógra Fianna Fáil have a long-standing tradition of naming their cumann (i.e. their societies) after Irish Patriots in line with their strong Republican ethos. We decided as the Fianna Fáil Cumann in the University to name ours after the great, Limerick, martyr Con Colbert. Whether you chose to get involved in the politics of it all, or just like to come for the craic; joining the Con Colbert Cumann is something that you will never regret.
