Fathers' Rights-Responsibility Party was an Irish political party, led by Liam Ó Gógáin and formed in 2007. It did not register with the Clerk of Dáil Éireann (a legal requirement for entities seeking to form political parties in the Republic of Ireland[1]) and thus it contested the 2007 general election with 8 candidates running as Independents.[2] They polled 1,355 first preference votes in total in that election but did not win any seats.[2] The party campaigned on Fathers' rights issues in Ireland "growing from what it argues are injustices against fathers within the courts system."[2] As of 2010, it is defunct.[citation needed]
