‘Irexit Freedom to Prosper’ was established last September with Mr. Kelly, a director of communications with the right-wing Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy group in the European Parliament, its first president. Bookmaker Paddy Power has priced its chances of taking a seat in the European elections at the end of May at 14/1.

The party has said its objective is the “re-establishment of the national independence and sovereignty of Ireland and the restoration of national democracy to be achieved through leaving the EU.”
