Labour's New Democratic Programme
Our Policies

The Democratic Programme of the First Dáil was largely written by Labour's then leader, Tom Johnson. It was formally adopted by the First Dáil and sets out important principles such as liberty, equality and justice for all, to guide the work of the Irish government.

Over the course of 2018, the Labour Party consulted widely and rewrote the Democratic Programme for the 21st Century. This new text builds on the original and sets out our core values and aspirations for a truly equal, democratic Ireland.
