Good riddence Mr Gilmore.
The resignation of Eamon Gilmore shows that failing to deliver on political promises has consequences. The heave against Gilmore was led by politicians from the South East- notably former MEP Phil Prendergast and Ciara Conway TD. Eamon Gilmore garnered votes across the South East by leading on the university issue, but then took no action whilst in office. Perhaps with Gilmore gone, Labour will now focus on delivering what they promised. Labour TDs Ann Phelan, Alan Kelly, Ciara Conway and Brendan Howlin have limited time left to progress the South East's university aspirations before they follow their colleagues out the door. The people of the South East have high hopes that Gilmore's successor delivers what was promised to the region. Farewell Mr. Gilmore.
