Recruitment Round Up

Labour Youth have been very busy recruiting lots of new members in colleges and schools over the last few weeks.

There’s been great engagement at the stands with people showing lots of interest in Labour Youth’s campaigns on housing, climate change and worker’s rights. Thanks to all the councillors, TDs and Senators, and especially to party leader Brendan Howlin who made visits to so many of the college stands, to greet new members and support the Labour Youth members who were working so hard to recruit new members.

The branches have been organising lots of interesting events to keep the new members involved. DCU hosted an event earlier this week called ‘Why Labour? Is the cause of Labour still relevant in modern Ireland?” with Senator Aodhán Ó Ríordáin, Cllr. Alison Gilliland and former Chair of Labour Youth and Lead Organiser with Fórsa, Grace Williams.

UCD Labour have been hosting film nights – recently showing Michael Moore’s film Fahrenheit 11/9 and have some more themed nights coming up, including ‘Cakes and Climate Action’ and a Dodder Clean-up with Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Labour Youth.

Trinity Labour hosted a political speed dating event with the Greens and Social Democrats and also a joint table quiz. The UCC branch and the Maynooth branch have hosted EGMs to get some of the new members onto their committees for the year.

Keep an eye on Labour Youth’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for more info on the events they are organising!

We also had a great week this week at Zeminar, talking to thousands of school students from all over the country about Labour Youth’s campaigns and policies.

Huge thanks and well done must be given to Labour Youth Chair, Patrick Ahern and the rest of the National Youth Executive, for all their hard work planning this recruitment season, and to all of the branch chairs, committees and Labour Youth members who have given so many hours over the last few weeks to spreading the party message to young people.

Next Tuesday 15 th October, we’ll be welcoming Labour Youth’s new members into Leinster House for a Dáil tour, Q&A with members of the PLP and a bit of socialising afterwards. Spaces are still available, if any Labour Youth members would like to attend, but registration is essential before Monday 14 th October to
