Is pairtí polaitiúil é Fianna Fáil i bPoblacht na hÉireann. Tagann an t-ainm ón seanchas mar ba bhuíon laochra iad na Fianna faoi cheannas Fhinn Mhic Cumhaill. B'ainm "Inis Fáil" a glacadh mar ainm eile ar Éirinn. Bhí scoilt i Sinn Féin tar éis an conradh i 1922 idir Éirinn is an Bhreatain Mhór a chuir deireadh le Cogadh na Saoirse. D'fhág Eamon de Valera Sinn Féin i 1925 mar níor mhaith leis an bpairtí a suíocháin a ghlacadh sa Dháil mar gheall ar an mionn dílseachta do rí na Breataine. Ag an am sin, dúirt Seán Lemass gur 'pairtí leath-bhunreachtúil' ab ea an pairtí mar ní raibh siad ach ag féachaint cad ab fhéidir leo a fháil trí mheáin pholaitiúla agus dá mbeadh gá ann, d'fhillfidís arís ar an bhforéigean. Is minic An Páirtí Poblachtach nó The Republican Party mar fhotheideal ar ainm an pháirtí.

Fianna Fáil – The Republican Party, more commonly known as Fianna Fáil is a centrist to centre-right Irish republican and conservative (with a growing trend towards Liberalism political party) in Ireland, founded on 23 March 1926. Fianna Fáil's name is traditionally translated into English as Soldiers of Destiny, although a more accurate rendition would be Warriors of Fál ("Fál" being a legendary name for Ireland). Historically, Fianna Fáil has been seen as to the left of Fine Gael and to the right of the Labour Party and is generally seen as a classic "catch all" populist party - representing a broad range of people from all social classes with the belief in the coincidence of economic growth and social progress. Fianna Fáil has led governments including parties of the centre-left (Labour and the Green Party) and of the centre-right (the now-defunct Progressive Democrats). It is led by Micheál Martin since January 2011.
Since the formation of the first Fianna Fáil government on 9 March 1932, the party has been in power for 61 of the last 79 years. Its longest continuous period in office was 15 years and 11 months (March 1932–February 1948). Its single longest period out of office, in that time, has been 4 years and 4 months (March 1973–July 1977). where it saw its electoral support base diminished by 75%, as a reaction to the intervention, and in the running of the Irish economy, of the International Monetary Fund and the European Central Bank in November 2010. After the February 2011 election, it moved from being the largest party to the third-largest party in the 31st Dáil.
Seven of the party's eight leaders have served as Taoiseach. It was the largest party in Dáil Éireann at every general election from the 1932 general election until the 2011 general election, when it suffered the worst defeat of a sitting government in the history of the Irish state, a loss described as "historic" in its proportions,
Fianna Fáil joined the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe Party (then known as the European Liberal Democrat and Reform Party) on 16 April 2009, and has sat in its associated Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE) group in the European Parliament since the 2009 European elections.
