 Fine Gael - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Fine Gael was founded on 3 September 1933 following the merger of Cumann na nGaedhael, the Centre Party and the Army Comrades Association, though it traces its origins back to the struggle for Irish independence and the pro-Treaty side in the Irish Civil War, identified in particular with Michael Collins.
That document was the brainchild of Declan Costello, a Fine Gael TD and son of former Taoiseach John A Costello, and reflected an emerging faction in the party that was being influenced by Social Democracy.
Fine Gael's revitalisation was of such a scale that by the November 1982 general election, Fine Gael was only five seats behind Fianna Fáil in Dáil Éireann and bigger than the party in the Oireachtas (both houses of parliament put together).
