Gilmore For Seats Shock



Labour party leader Eamon Gilmore spoke to Aengus Mac Grianna on this evening’s Six One News in light of Labour’s performance in the local and European elections.

He said:

“We have to renew Government. We have to renew what we’re doing in Government. We have to hear very clearly the squeeze that families are under and to address that….and the Labour party has to renew itself.”

When asked about his leadership he said:

“Well there’s no question about my leadership. I’ve taken on a responsibility and the responsibility we took on in Government we knew at the time was always going to be a difficult responsibility and I intend to discharge that responsibility and to continue doing so.”
