The Director of the National Library of Ireland Fiona Ross with Deputy Emmet Stagg and former Deputy Brian O'Shea signing the Deed of Gift of the party archives.
Last week as trustee of the Labour Party Deputy Emmet Stagg and former Deputy Brian O'Shea signed a Deed of Gift to the National Library of Ireland of the party's archives as part of our centenary celebrations. They will be handed over to the National Library next month and archived by a professional archivist who will be appointed by the Labour Party. We have more images from the signing of the Deed of Gift on Flickr. You can also check out our Centenary website at this link including a timeline of Labour's history at this link. The Labour Party centenary materical can be shared from our Pinterest account.

This year Labour is marking the official 100th anniversary of the foundation of the party in Clonmel by James Connolly, James Larkin and William O'Brien in 1912.
Over the year we have held a number of events to mark this significant and proud milestone and now we have launched our Centenary website which you can check out here. As well as including a history of the Labour Party, there is a photographic timeline which includes many rarely-seen images from the party's history.
Among the other features on the site is a School's essay competition where students are invited to write an essay with the chance of winning a prize of a trip to Brussels for 20 students and their teachers to visit the European Parliament.
