Election box metadata[edit]

This article contains some sub-pages that hold metadata about this subject. This metadata is used by the Election box templates to display the color of the party and its name in Election candidate and results tables.

Social conservatism[edit]

Describing Fine Gael as socially conservative, such as the info-box of this article does, is outdated by years. Fine Gael are now pro-choice and are campaigning for "gay marriage", which isn't exactly the definition of socially conservative. Tomh903 (talk) 20:51, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

I agree, this should be removed from the info-box. (Or at the very least added to Fianna Fáil's info-box for consistency, because as some in the talk page have previously indicated it could be argued that they are currently more socially conservative than Fine Gael) [1] [2] [3] Ranníocóir (talk) 19:34, 4 June 2015 (UTC)

Numbers changed[edit]

One of their TDs, Sean Conlan, resigned from the party today. http://www.irishexaminer.com/breakingnews/ireland/fine-gael-td-sean-conlan-resigns-from-party-707197.html I've updated their TD numbers in the data box (or whatever it is called) to reflect that.

Put abortion in separate heading[edit]

To avoid rows over which heading abortion should be under (pro-life and pro-choice sides in Ireland constantly row over something as basic as under what heading does it belong to, Health Justice or Social Affairs, I have put it under its own separate sub-heading. So no-one can accuse the article of POV by where the topic is covered.

I also added in additional information about FG's stance on the 1983 and 2002 amendments, and a link to its current stance on the 8th Amendment. Hopefully it is NPOV. (If something annoys both sides it usually means it is NPOV!) FearÉIREANN\(caint) 17:43, 14 December 2015 (UTC)

Ideology[edit]

There's a comment in the Ideology section when you go to edit it: "Please don't change the ideology section without discussing it on the talk page first." Good idea. Apollo The Logician, can you explain why you're adding an unsourced "United Ireland" to the ideology section, with no source, when previously you had removed "Centrism" from it, with the edit summary "No source"? BastunĖġáḍβáś₮ŭŃ! 20:38, 6 February 2017 (UTC)

Oh sorry I didn't see that, it should be moved further down and put in the ideology section, not above it. I don't remember ever removing centrism from the article. I didn't think it was necessary per WP:SKYISBLUE. I will do it now.Apollo The Logician (talk) 20:41, 6 February 2017 (UTC)
You removed it from the infobox, here. BastunĖġáḍβáś₮ŭŃ! 21:00, 6 February 2017 (UTC)
