Green Party holds Refocus meeting

John Gormley is to step down as Green Party leader

Around 300 members of the beleaguered Green Party have met to discuss its future.

The gathering in Dublin was the first such event since the party's disastrous showing in the General Election, when the former coalition government partner lost all six TDs.

It also came in the wake of party leader John Gormley's announcement that he would be standing down.

The meeting, called Re-Gather and Refocus, was organised by grassroots members with the support of the leadership.

During the event, members put forward their ideas on how to revive the party's flagging fortunes.

But the issue of who will succeed Mr Gormley was apparently not on the table.
