Union official is new Labour chair

Tanaiste Eamon Gilmore has received a boost after Siptu official Lorraine Mulligan was voted in as the new Labour chairperson.

She was seen as the choice of the party hierarchy, while rival candidate, former general secretary Ray Kavanagh, was seen as the "anti-leadership" choice with the potential to cause more problems for Mr Gilmore. It represents a boost for Mr Gilmore, whose leadership has been under pressure over the past year.
