Eamon Gilmore is Labour leader but for how long?
With absolute decimation today in the local and European elections, Labour TD’s are putting a brave face on it but insiders say it’s only a matter of days before Gilmore steps down.
Interestingly, Labour seemed to have taken the brunt of the force bit Fine Gael definitely go lightly. They took a number of hard knocks this afternoon too.
The real winners today were he independents who will eventually take many seats over the coming hours.
