Shinners won their seats on more than 10% and it was on a variety of sub-issues. There's no votes in pure anti-EUism in Ireland. Hermann made a lot of fundamental mistakes. The NP's appraoch against the EU is more reasonable for an Irish electorate and in general as well. People act as if we can't do anything because of the EU - no, our government just hasn't the willpower. Switzerland isn't in the EU, they have the sort of EFDD-style Direct Democracy and they banned Minarets by referendum, however their population is still 30+% foreign national. How are they doing? The EU is a problem but it's the traitors in our own midst who are the biggest blockade to Irish Nationalism.I disagree. I suspect the Irish voting public isn't that far off from those over in Britoon. Even going by the pro EU recent research that 'only 10% of the Irish voting public would support Irexit" even that is a huge and dangerous voting block in a hugely fragmented voting system like Ireland. Soros Fein had less than 10% of the last Dail vote and still won 23 seats. Their chances at the European elections are dramatically higher again.
