A new political party has been established, vowing to be different from the existing political groups.
The National Independent Party is a group made up from the reform group Slí Níos Fearr [a better way], who are unhappy with how the current political system works.
The party said between now and the Local elections they will canvass new members to run for them.
The Party is opening its first constituency office in Limerick this Thursday.
Spokesperson Martin Critten said they want people to know that they are ordinary citizens looking to bring the country forward.
Mr Critten said: "We also want people to know that if they're talking to the National Independent Party, that they're engaging with people who are cognisant of past traditions.
"They know where we've come from, and we want to be able to exercise a balance and a fairness … across all sections of society."
