A Christmas message from the Tánaiste and Leader of the Labour Party Eamon Gilmore

Posted on December 23, 2013

The Tánaiste and Leader of the Labour Party Eamon Gilmore.

I would like to wish you all the very best for the year ahead. This time last year I said that 2013 would be the year when we would begin to have sight of the long hoped for economic recovery. That has happened and now as we start into 2014 we can dare to hope again for the first time since the crisis began.

Exiting bailout is an important moment, but it is only a step along the road - Gilmore

Posted on December 13, 2013

The Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore speaking ahead of the bailout exit

This Sunday, the Troika will leave Ireland after three long years. Although their exit will not wave a magic wand over our finances, it is an important day which underscores not just the hard work taken to get us here, but also symbolises a new juncture in Ireland’s journey post-bailout.

[Listen to the Tánaiste's speech made to the IIEA earlier today.]

Emer Costello MEP writes about her Youth Guarantee seminars

Posted on December 11, 2013

 

In this post Emer Costello MEP writes about her recent Youth Guarantee seminars. 

On Friday 22 November I held a regional consultation seminar on the Youth Guarantee at the Maldron Hotel, Tallaght. This year, I have held five events across Dublin, in Tallaght, Swords, Dun Laoghaire and the City Centre, to encourage those working in youth support and education to give their suggestions on how the European Youth Guarantee might be rolled out. The findings from these events will be submitted to Minister for Social Protection, Joan Burton TD, ahead of Ireland’s application to the Youth Guarantee programme before the end of the year.

Working Together - the story of the Labour Party in Government

Posted on December 01, 2013

The theme of the Labour Party conference 2013 was Working Together:

Working Together on behalf of the Irish people,
Working Together with our partners in Government to create jobs and build economic recovery,
Working Together as elected representatives, members, and supporters of the Labour Party.

Our team of Ministers at the Cabinet Table have also been working together to fix the mess we inherited from Fianna Fail, exit the bailout programme, and get our people back to work.

That task hasn’t been easy. But we have made enormous progress and on December 15th will say goodbye to the troika. The short video tells the story of how we went about that challenge.

Century of Struggle and Achievement

Posted on December 01, 2013

At the Labour Party conference 2013 we marked the 100 year anniversary of the 1913 Lockout. Our party, trade unions, our members and our supporters, continue to draw inspiration from those events.

Over the 100 years since the Lockout, the Labour movement has contributed so much to the struggle for social and economic justice in Ireland. That struggle continues to this day through our work in Government in bringing Ireland out of the bailout.

This video captures the Labour movement's Century of Struggle and Achievement.
