Our Policies

Ireland is a rich country. Yet, for so many people in our society, Ireland is simply not working.

It's time for An Ireland That Works for All

The housing model is broken. Vital climate targets are being missed. The cost of childcare is soaring. Low pay leaves many unable to make ends meet. Secure jobs and decent work are being threatened by a compounding energy crisis.

But we know that thanks to the hard work of the Irish people, we have the resources to fix the issues that are holding us back.

Politics is about choices – choices in how we use our resources to make Ireland work for everyone, not just the well-off.

The Labour Party chooses an alternative vision for Ireland, based on radical action to address our many issues, and grounded in our social democratic values.

On care. On climate. On housing. On jobs and work.

Labour wants An Ireland That Works for All.

New Deal for Workers

Work

For many working people and families, this is a low-pay and high-cost country – Ireland needs a pay rise, alongside a significant reduction in out-of-pocket costs for essential public services.
