The newly elected chair of the Clare Labour Party has vowed to ‘fight for fairness.’

The party has chosen Ennistymon native Denis Vaughan as chair on a platform of Fight for Fairness. Mr Vaughan is a member of the Labour Party’s International Committee and has argued passionately for Labour’s three main principles Decency, Justice and Equality to be reflected in the local agenda.

Mr Vaughan said: “Few realise that women in Clare earn 13.9% less than men. Decent work deserves decent pay. How can we accept this? How can we accept a 14% increase in homelessness in the state at a time when the economy is booming? Just take a walk down O’Connell Street Ennis any evening, you’ll see with your own eyes how urgent the issue is – and when you do, keep in mind Clare County Council has had one home vacant since 2006!

Let’s put a stop to this nonsense, address the issues, and get our people housed, fund education, and above all recognise the critical contributions of women to building a fairer society. Let’s Fight For Fairness!”, Mr Vaughan added.
