Become a Member or Renew Your Membership

Welcome if you're here to join the Social Democrats for the first time.

And thank you if you're here to renew your membership!

The Party has grown and developed rapidly since we set up in 2015.

Our increasing activity on the ground by members and supporters in constituencies will be essential in winning more seats in what may be an early election. 

Your membership is vital in our fight together to build a better, fairer Republic.

Membership Fee

The membership fee is a minimum of €10 per year (or €5 for unwaged members). Any additional amount you include with your membership will go directly towards our election funds, but the amount you pay is your choice. We suggest €20 or more, if you can afford it.

If you would like more information, or would like to make a monthly contribution including your membership, please contact us at
