Leader of Labour Party Brendan Howlin (centre)speaking to the media at the launch of the Labour Campiagn Posters for Michael D Higgins to continue as President of ireland
Mr Howlin said:
“We have negotiated with the Michael D Higgins campaign and we have been allocated a spend of €70,000 from the overall spend.
We spent around €60,000 on the last referendum campaign and that is the sort of spend we expect to put in to the re-election of Michael D Higgins.
In terms of the number of posters, we have an initial run of 4,000. I think there will be a demand for an awful lot more.
Our organisations right across the country are looking to campaign to re-elect the president and an awful lot of people outside the Labour party family want to join us in that work.”
