Howlin faces Labour calls to step down

Irish Sunday Mirror - - NEWS -

LABOUR is hold­ing its think-in this week­end when Bren­dan Howlin’s lead­er­ship could be among the is­sues dis­cussed.

In re­cent weeks some lo­cal coun­cil­lors have called for Mr Howlin to stand aside be­cause of poor show­ings in polls.

Tip­per­ary TD Alan Kelly, who is also the party’s health spokesman, last month hinted at a res­ig­na­tion call telling Tipp FM ra­dio: “I think Bren­dan needs to con­sider what is best for the Labour Party into the fu­ture.”

The event is in Drogheda, Co Louth, with one Labour in­sider jok­ing “let’s hope it’s not an­other Bat­tle of the Boyne”.
