Tom Johnson 2013

It’s hard to believe that the last Tom Johnson was a year ago, but here we are; it’s that time of the year again! This year, Labour Youth brings the 20th annual Tom Johnson Summer School to Portlaoise, on the 20-22 June. The annual summer school is named after Tom Johnson, who served as Leader of the Labour Party from 1917-27.

Each year, Labour Youth hosts this event for members and supporters of the Labour Party as a means of discussing and debating our hopes and aspirations for Ireland. Over the course of the weekend we’ll be hearing from guest speakers, participating in panel discussions and workshops and hosting hustings for the Labour Party Leadership elections.
