    Default Labour Seats - the run down

    Those in RED are probably not going to run in 2012, those in BLUE may or may not, those in GREEN probably will run in 2012. Assumptions made on age, health and previous statements to that effect.

    Dublin North-East: Tommy Broughan
    Dublin North-West: Róisín Shortall
    Dublin South-Central: Mary Upton
    Dublin South-East: Ruairi Quinn
    Dublin South-West: Pat Rabbitte
    Dublin West: Joan Burton
    Dún Laoghaire: Eamon Gilmore

    Leinster

    Labour faces many challenges in 2012. NO t only are many of the unsuccessful not going to be running in 2012. But there will be some heavy weights in need of replacing also.

    Its a difficult transition. We had to purge a dinosaur in Sligo/North Leitrim and now have to rebuild. But at least we are in the position to do that and allow young blood up through the ranks for the first time in 15yrs.

    Its tough but worth in the long run.
    Veni, vidi, arrivederci

    I agree totally with the original poster and was going to post somethin similar when the dust had settled. It is essential that work begins immediately on a strong line-up and we can begin by ensuring that we have credible candidates in the locals ( 2 years ).

    The age profile of the Labour Party is worryingly old
    Where are the Lucinda Creighton's who appeal to the younger voter?

    Agreed this is a problem Labour has.

    Hopefully there can be a serious discussion about future direction and reenergising the membership at the summer school in Galway.
