Labour LGBT wishes to thank everyone who voted for the Labour Party on Friday. It has been a historic result which saw the Labour Party become the second largest party in the Dáil.

History was also made in the election of not one but two openly gay TDs. The election of both Dominic Hannigan (Meath East) and John Lyons (Dublin North West) as TD's for the Labour Party is a step forward for equality in Ireland and we look forward to their contributions in the Dáil.
