Support facebook campaign for Dana to be next President of Ireland

An 18 year old Irish man has started a facebook group to campaign for Dana to be the next President of Ireland. The next presidential election is to be held in October 2011. Please get your friends to support this facebook group to encourage Dana to stand for president.

The founder of the group explains his reasons for starting this campaign:

‘I set this page up to gather support for Dana Rosemary Scallon in the race for Irish President.

I have nothing to do with Dana or any organization connected with her. I’m just an 18year old that feels that Dana would bring this country back to its golden age, without fear of the IMF or EU, without fear of having the EU impose orders against the will of the majority of the proud Irish people, without corruption in office!

In 1997 Dana made history by receiving the nominations of five county councils. While this was a constitutionally legitimate means of gaining nomination to compete for the presidency, the approach was unprecedented before her campaign. In the election she campaigned for family values, protecting the Irish Constitution strongly and on Pro-Life issues.

In the 1999 European Elections she become an MEP for Connacht–Ulster, a post which she fought hard for. She continued the fight for Ireland and the impoverished West coast of Ireland over in Europe, as her record showed.
She was sadly lost her MEP seat, narrowly, in 2004. In both Lisbon Treaty debates she supported the No side of the debates. She knew exactly what Lisbon would mean for Ireland and the state we are in now!

Dana’s record speaks for itself. She’s not afraid to stand up for what is right! Not afraid to stand up for her country! Not afraid to stand up for her believes! And not afraid to stand up for you!

Please like this page and pass it around, I hope that it gains momentum so we will see the name Dana Rosemary Scallon on the ballad paper come November!

According to a recent TV3 Report Dana is currently considering her position with regards to this election, lets use this page to show her she has support!

Miriam Lord wrote the following in the Irish Times:

‘Meanwhile, strong but unconfirmed reports are reaching us about Dana Rosemary Scallon, who polled well when she ran for the presidency 14 years ago.

She was also one of the two politicians who tried but failed to challenge Mary McAleese’s uncontested return to the Áras last time out, the other being the former Green Party minister Eamon Ryan.

We hear that her supporters have been taking soundings about her prospects. Apparently she fared well in a private poll they conducted, so don’t be surprised if she throws her hat into the ring again.’

Protect the Pope comment: Dana’s pro-life credentials are impeccable, and she is a devout Catholic who has used her great talents as a musician to praise the Lord and teach the faith. When this is combined with the fact that she is an experienced politician it is clear that Dana would make a great president during these dark times for Ireland

    I am sure she would make a great president. Not sure that the Irish President has much real power though. Isn’t it a ceromonial role very similar to the Queeen’s role in the UK?

  • I would like to see a non political party individual elected as President. Personally I would have no problem with David Norris, on one condition. He apologises for his gratuitously offensive comments about Pope Benedict. We all say things occassionally which we should’nt. If he is gracious enough to do this, then all is forgiven. The media campaign for David Norris is a little off-putting/ott. We’re kind of being brow beaten/black-mailed to prove our right-on/liberal credentials, to show that we are all nice homogenous ( no pun intented ) touchy-feely liberals.

  • patricia

    She would make a fantastic President.
    non political
    non party
    no corruption
    great integrity and decency
    internationally recognised and respected and someone who has represented Ireland with great dignity for years -from presidents to popes
    she is what Ireland needs

    OFF TOPIC

    Today Mr Yago de La Cierva , chief responsible for the impending world youth day in Madrid, has presented the event in Milan, Avvenire reports. He will be presenting world youth in other European cities.
    He told Avvenire he started in Italy because, so far, it’s the country where most enrollments come from.
    Almost 90,000 Italian young people have signed up for Madrid Youth day so far.

  • fd

    She certainly would make (will make infact) a good president . If only she would run for president in Italy! We badly need a politician like her right now in the country…
    I’m glad she’s running for president in Ireland. Let’s hope she’ll restore confidence

  • Edmund

    Let’s clarify a couple of things here:
    1. Dana [Rosemary Scallon] is not an official [nominated] candidate for the Irish Presidency
    2. She may very possibly become a candidate – depending on securing the requisite nomination – to run
    3. She secured 14% of the national vote last time she stood and her reputation for absolute integrity has grown in stature and profile since (the viewing figures for a recent RTE documentary on Dana were in excess of 450,000!)
    4. As a faithful wife and mother [known for her unequivocal fidelity to Catholic teaching on faith and morals] she would bring a refreshingly dynamic aspect to a massive vacuum in statesmanship in Ireland and at a time when as a parent her parental authority would be massively symbolic in reminding ALL irish parents that the welfare of THEIR children is not dependent upon the credibility anbd trustworthiness of clerics but upon the MORAL and SPIRITUAL POWER of parents based on natural law.
    5. As a native of Derry, who enjoys considerable respect across ALL sections of the community in Northern Ireland she would play a pivotal role in being a symbol of unity among ALL families North and South of the border
    6. David Norris supported her candidacy when she stood last time round and given his KNOWN support for reducing the age of consent for homosexual sex he would be wiser to stand aside and leave more people to consider voting for her for she alone can embody the legitimate Constitution of the Republic which acknowledges the Blessed Trinity and the ABSOLUTE right of the family founded upon the lifelong union of one man with one woman as THE bedrock of society. If the Irish elected David Norris they can say goodbye to this unique Constituion and to the centrality of the family in Irish culture, life, economics and the common good according to Catholic social teaching and the principles of subsidiarity.

  • catherine

    a good person to lead Ireland

  • john

    She would not be elected president as she got 13.5% in 1997 and could not get one single nomination back in 2004. Her style of right wing catholicism is no longer supported in Ireland

  • “I’m just an 18year old that feels that Dana would bring this country back to its golden age..”

    This site is a joke, right?

    Outside Donegal people believe Dana outlived her usefulness – such as it was – when she won the Eurovision in 1970.

  • Lynn Doorhy

    Dana is the kind of person one dreams of as president. She embodies an Ireland that wasn’t half so materially wealthy as our current nation (even in the midst of the economic doldrums)but whose people possessed a humble and sincere morality that provided us with an ethical standing that was respected around the world. She has stood up for a Church that was the only thing that we had to rally round in this country for centuries while brutally oppressed under the yoke of foreign domination. Today our chic anti-Catholic media, universities, and politicians(i.e. the usual suspects in all Western nations) zealously attack our Church and the morality it represents (and indeed gave us) in Ireland. Interestingly they do so for the most part on the basis of “child abuse” from Christian Brothers’ beatings of young lads to child molestation of virtually exclusively early adolescent boys by a tiny handful of homosexual perverts who in no way represent the overwhelming majority of clergy in Ireland. Overlooked in all of this self-righteous blather are a few inconvenient facts, such as that severe beatings of boys by their fathers was commonplace in this country well into the 1970s;also conveniently avoided is any discussion of molestation by lay teachers, scout leaders, and most numerous of all male members of the victims’ own families.

    Dana has stood for values that are centuries old and which made my parents and grandparents so much happier when they were so economically poorer but immeasurably morally richer than we are today. It appears that the ethical poverty of the contemporary average Irishman is quite acceptable, whether he is having children out of wedlock, living with a woman, having an extramarital affair, or refusing to attend mass based on “moral principles” (there’s an oxymoron, or maybe just a moron, if I ever heard one)when his real principles are lethargy and indifference. All this is now acceptable in much of Irish society, provided the Irishman in question is making enough Euro. It is beneath contempt for us as a race. We have truly reached our nadir as a people.

    I wholeheartedly support Dana’s candidacy. This is a person who can restore some semblance of sanity to an Ireland, many of whose people today wallow not
    only in financial decay, but moral decadence as well.

  • Patrick

    Lynn you provide a truly accurate and insightful analysis of post modern Ireland. It is true to say that Irish life and culture is at a historical crossroads and like all crossroads there is a decision to be made about the next direction to be taken and followed. Dana is not a presidential candidate as she has neither announced that she is nor is she openly seeking the requisite nominations but one thing is for sure if she does decoide to stand for election I believe enough Irish voters would back her [contarry to the skeptical opinion expressed above] as one has only to note that in the recent online poll of the Irish Independent newspaper, after 3 days of polling she still retained a projected 42% when at best one of the existing candidates has only polled 18% despite their party political backing! All I can say is that if this remarkable woman takes the courageous step of running for office as Head of State then it will be something she does after much prayer and careful thought about how best to serve her nation and as such she will trust everything to Divine Providence. And how many amongst the current political elite in Ireland could you describe in such terms?

  • Kilbane

    I met Dana; one genuine sound lady. A pro-life stance with gentle but firm delivery. More power to her elbow!

  • Chris

    Religion should have absolutely nothing to do with politics. The president should represent all the people of the country and she certainly does not represent me or any person I know (or care to know).

    Also Lynn ..
    “Today our chic anti-Catholic media,universities,and politicians(i.e. the usual suspects in all Western nations) zealously attack our Church and the morality it represents (and indeed gave us) in Ireland”

    This is potentially the most ignorant statement I have ever read. Considering most Christians, let alone Catholics, have never read the bible, it’s ironic such strong beliefs are held. Further, the catholic church does not have a monopoly on morality. According to which part of the bible you happen to read, murder and incest (in the right context) is moral. How is this an example to lead by. Don’t even get me started on the church scandal and the audacity the catholic institution has to continue telling people how to live their lives.
    At the end of the day believe what you will, I couldn’t care less. Just don’t subject everyone to your superstitious belief system.

    • BIGOTRY AND HATE CAMPAIGN IS DESTROYING IRELAND,IF YOU WERE CHRISTIAN YOU WOULD LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOURS, THIS WAS THE NEW COMMANDMENT BY WORD OF GOD.

      ATTACKS ON OTHER FATHS IS HARMING ALL CHRISTIANS, YOUR NOT COMPELLED TO BE A MEMBER OF ANY PARTICULAR FAITH, CHILD ABUSE WAS WIDESPREAD BY STATE, ALSO PRETESTANT INSTITUTIONS BETHONY HS DUBLIN, KINCORA HS BELFAST BUT IT WAS NOT EXCLUSIVE ONLY TO ONE CHURCH RCC WE CONDEMNED ALL CHILD ABUSE, REGARDING PRESIDENT ELECTED SHOULD REPRESENT EVERYONE FAITH AND NONE DANA ROSEMARY SCALLON IS THE BEST CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT OF IRELAND 2011

  • Tom

    I believe that this woman would be the worst choice for president. Ireland has final managed to get itself from under the acknowledged yolk of suppression implemented by the Roman Catholic church. Placing somebody like Ms Scallon in the President’s role would cause fracture in an already troubled society.

    • TOM,YOU ARE A BIGOT AND TROUBLED MAN,
      THE BEST CANDIDATE IS DANA ROSEMARY SCALLON FOR PRESIDENT FOR IRELAND, STANDING IN ELECTION FOR TRUST,A WONERFUL LADY, HONEST HARD WORKER,WELL INFORMED A FORMER IRISH MEP WHO IS A LADY OF THUTH,DESERVING OF SUPPORT, MY VOTE AND MANY OTHER CITIZENS IS FOR DANA TO BE THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF IRELAND 2011
      DANA IS NOT SECTERIAN,AND BRINGS HOPE,TRUST AND HEALING FOR IRELAND AND WILL WORK FOR EVERY CREED AND NONE, SHE IS A DECENT REMARKABLE LADY, A PEOPLE PRESIDENT INDEED AND A BREATH OF FRESH AIR WHICH WE ALL NEED ON THE ISLAND OF IRELAND

      • jean

        I think dana is the only person bang on about being bullied by eu.I cannot believe people are voting gallagher instead of dana.Her basic principals regarding protecting the constitution is so so important and indeed many people will regret they did not pay attention.

  • Leah

    I agree Chris. This woman should not be allowed to become president. Her religious views are agains’t contraception and womens rights. I would like to hear her views on the crimes the church has committed against its people.

  • Eddie Byrne

    @GombeenMan “Outside Donegal people believe Dana outlived her usefulness –such as it was –when she won the Eurovision in 1970.”. We in Donegal have the same reservations about this woman as those “outside” Donegal. Religion has no place in the presidential race. Religion and these religious sites should be shut down overnight. Its common scum who will back an organisation who treats paedophilia as a trivial confessional sin. Grow up and realise that the chances of there being any such thing as a ‘god’ or ‘his son’ are non existent

  • Cynthia

    Dana is the only person I would vote for for President. She is honest, Hardworking, reliable and is what Ireland needs to bring back the dignity of this country. Dana has the experience also and is not afraid to stand up for what is right. She is morally sound and practices her Faith a Faith which has seen Ireland through thick and thin. DANA FOR PRESIDENT Please also join The National Rosary Rally to help Consecrate Ireland to Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart – we need Our Lady’s help.

  • seamus

    dana for president
    keep it catholic
    she gets my NO 1

  • Col

    I normally put women last on the ballot because abortion and wimmins rights are one.
    But I think I’ll vote for a woman who is against abortion than a bunch of men who worship at the temple of women’s rights.

  • Ronnie

    I think Dana would be a great president for Ireland because, she has INTEGRITY. When people say she has no power, they could not be further from the truth, because no law can be effected until it is signed by the President and you can be sure as hell, that she ain’t gonna sign in some law that is going to further impoverish this nation any further either fiscally or morally. All the other canidates want to change this nation to suit their own tribe’s agenda ie republic leftist, homosexualist,cunning businessman,communist,european federalist and worst of all, my bank accountist ( Mary davis).

    • bananna

      When people say she has no power,they could not be further from the truth,because no law can be effected until it is signed by the President and you can be sure as hell,that she ain’t gonna sign”

      Your statement couldn’t be further from the truth!! She could only refuse to sign if she thought the law was unconstitutional in which case she would have to send it to the supreme court where the judges would decide, if they deem it constitutional then either she signs it or resigns as the head of state in which case she will only cost the taxpayers more money causing a new election.

      She will have no powers, she will only be the guardian of the constitution and can only refer laws/bills to the supreme court judges where they will deem that law fit or unfit. Or if for example the majority of the Irish people vote yes on a referendum regarding gay marriage than she must sign the new bill into law or resign as only the Irish people can change the constitution and the president must respect that as their right or leave office, her religious views are irrelevant.

      If you are Irish then you are an embarrassment to your nation as you are not aware or have not read the peoples constitution which details the powers and role of the president of Ireland.

  • Fr James Buckley

    I am appalled that anyone would try to smear Mrs Scallon. She must become Uachtaran. We stand to lose everything worthy in this country if she fails again. Please vote for Dana Rosemary Scallon so we can return to the position of respect we held in the 1950s when the world looked to Eire for moral leadership. We can be sure that Mrs Scallon will do her utmost to bring about a renewal of honour, faith and everything we cherish. Our Irish emigrants in England, Boston and Australia should be allowed to vote. They can see the truth from afar. We in Ireland are misled by false gods. Vote for Mrs Scallon and protect the unborn and the faithful.

  • William Ahearne

    Too many people in this country are allowed to vote. If polling cards were distributed only to those receiving the Host at Sunday Mass we might see an election result which more accurately reflects the views of those who have the true interests of this country at heart. I would vote No. 1 for any candidate advocating such a policy and wish that Dana Rosemary Scallon would do so. Thank you.

  • Ned

    Hi,
    Best of luck to Dana in her bid for President of Ireland,

    I am puzzled why she has no personal facebook page to reach people with her message for this election?

  • Dana for President of Ireland 2011 will have my support and many many citizens will vote number 1 for Dana Rosemary Scallon all the way, you are ideed experenced as former MEP and a remarkable women of all the people, Dana can be trusted in safeguarding our Irish Sovereignty for presidental , The Irish Constitution belongs to the Irish people.

  • Philip Fay

    Dana

    You can turn this around and take back the moral ground we have lost

  • religion is not going to help now. its real honest people. going to confession isint enough.with religion for years and years ireland has had corruption.

  • Margarita

    I want Dana for Uactaran.I pray that the people of Ireland will wake up and see how spiritually bankrupt we are becoming or have beome. We need leaders with heart. Dana will bring beauty, grace and intelligence to the role.Let us wake up and see, hear, smell and taste the goodness and kindness that is our heritage. We need to get our noses out of the excrement to which we have become addicted and let us return to the kindness of our hearts and the intelligence of our minds. This will bring new wealth to our nation and not just the silver and gold. May the people
    of Ireland be true to themselves. Elect DAna.
