In the 1990s Republican Sinn Féin was among the first political organisations in Ireland to have a permanent and professional online presence by launching the national website www.rsf.ie and an online archive of the republican paper Saoirse on www.saoirse.info. Since then the internet became an essential part in the life of most people. To fulfil the requirements of the 21st century Republican Sin Féin decided to develop a new and modern online presence.
Following this decision RSF established a new official Facebook page, a Twitter account and a YouTube account in 2012. Further steps to develop the profile of Irish republicanism on the internet were made by setting up a new international website which is accessible onwww.rsf-international.org and a campaign website of the Republican campaign against the EU Austerity Treaty in May 2012.
The next step to polish up the online profile of our organisation and to make the republican voice be heard on a local level in Ireland is the launch of four provincial websites. RSF in the four provinces of Ireland is now available on http://leinster.rsf.ie/, http://ulster.rsf.ie/,http://munster.rsf.ie/ and http://connacht.rsf.ie/. These four provincial websites will provide news and events relevant to each province. All websites are regularly updated and we welcome all readers and our new provincial websites.
