Why? Are you looking to join one? Why right wing?

Well if you consider YFG and Ógra to be right wing youth groups I suppose anything will count here...

Labour Youth
Your local Football or Rugby Club
The local choir
The local Youth Club

All as very much right wing, almost fascist, as Ógra FF and Fine Gael

(I presume by Ógra you are also looking at Ógra Sinn Féin?)

I wouldn't call OSF a right wing group.

Unlikely they could be less useful than the left wing ones! :mrgreen:

Also, leaving aside YFG for a minute, there aren't many people who would consider Ogra FF to be 'right wing'. Perhaps you're unhealthily obsessed with political labels?

There is a youth group out there...
  • that wears a blue-shirted uniform;
  • pledges allegience to its own law and promise, and has its own salute;
  • places a big emphasis on physical fitness and exercise;
  • is affiliated to a worldwide movement founded by a British Army general who ordered the execution of an African rebel tribal chief and who wrote this in his diary: "Lay up all day. Read Mein Kampf. A wonderful book, with good ideas on education, health, propaganda, organization etc.-and ideals which Hitler does not practise himself."
Is that right-wing enough for you?
It has many thousands of members in Ireland!

From my experience ogra FF and YFG are pretty right wing, at times the only thing that would separate their members from each other would be family allegiances and such. That whole thing about colleges been a hub of left wing ideas is a nonsense, from what i've seen first hand student union reps etc are usually made up of law and debating societies whose members often come from YFG and ogra FF. For the OP, I think you missed the boat with the YPD's, thank god they are gone for good.

If they are not right-wing what are they? Socialistically challenged? Fianna Fáil and every wing of them are right wing, they are very right-wing. Anyone who expects us to believe that Baby FF are not right wing is taking the mick.

I would like to see a left wing group calling for an end to the minimum wage and the dole.

Let the working man work man!
