Weekly Round Up 30 Oct

Labour's Ministers and TDs around the country have had a very busy week this week. Over the Bank Holiday weekend, Minister Kathleen Lynch addressed delegates at the Macra na Feirme Conference in Cork on the topic of mental health amongst young people. An Tánaiste Joan Burton and Brendan Ryan TD visited Little Apples Crèche and Swords Senior Citizens Day Centre to discuss measures introduced in Budget 2016 for children and older people. 

Minister Aodhán Ó Ríordáin and the Tánaiste Joan Burton launched the Women in Sport Conference and the Abbey Theatre’s 1916 Commemoration Programme Waking the Nation on Wednesday while on Thursday evening members of the Arts community and the Labour Party gathered together on Thursday evening in the first of our Connolly Café forums. It was a lively evening of debate with prominent members of the arts community which will feed into the policy formation of our manifesto.
