GILMORE TO FACE TWO MOTIONS OF NO CONFIDENCE
Labour leader Eamon Gilmore is to face two motions of no confidence.
Seven TDs and one senator have submitted a motion to Labour’s Parliamentary Party meeting on Wednesday night.
The motion has been signed by TDs Ciara Conway, Dominic Hannigan, Michael McNamara, Ged Nash, Derek Nolan, Aodhan O Riordain and Arthur Spring, as well as senator John Gilroy.
It means the Tánaiste will face a potential vote on whether to remove him as party leader.
He will then face a separate motion of no confidence at the party’s Central Council – it’s understood that meeting is not due to be held for two to three weeks.
