Michael Brennan: Mood in the Labour dressing room not as gloomy as you might think
LABOUR held its last think in at Carton House - the training venue for Real Madrid's superstars. This year, it's at the Johnston House in Hotel which has recently played host to Davy Fitzgerald's Clare hurling team.
But Tanaiste Eamon Gilmore is managing a team which has far more question marks over its future than either Clare or Real Madrid.
Labour is mid-way through its term in a Government, which is falling out of favours with voters weary of constant austerity Budgets.
