Monetary Reform Party

Monetary Reform Party

The Monetary Reform Party was a minor Irish political party of the 1940s. It was little more than an electoral vehicle for Oliver J. Flanagan, the long-serving TD for the constituency of Laois–Offaly. As such, it is difficult to draw conclusions about the party independent from those about Flanagan himself. Monetary Reform can be seen as the most successful of a wave of minor far right parties in 1940s Ireland, like Ailtirí na hAiséirighe. [1] Flanagan played on certain themes of the Social Credit movement, which accentuated his image as an anti-Semitic politician.
