  Fine Gael
Fine Gael (pronounced fee-na gale) is currently the main opposition party in the Republic of Ireland.

Fine Gael generally follows centre-right policies and is allied with Christian Democrat[?] parties in the European Union.

Fine Gael, since the days of Cumann na nGaedheal, has been known as the party of law and order as a result of its tough stance on crime and its origins in defending the Anglo-Irish Treaty, notably sanctioning the execution of 77 anti-Treaty prisoners during the Irish Civil War.
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 on 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 its rival in the Oireachtas as a whole (i.e., counting the number of representatives in both houses of parliament).
