CIARAN CUFFE, who is contesting the election for the Green Party in Dun Laoghaire, has insisted there is a future for the Green Party, despite its likely annihilation in this election.

Speaking to RTE Radio, he said that “coming out of government for a small party like the Greens is tough”, but he insisted the sacrifices that have been made by the party in this election are a worthwhile exchange for its achievements.

Planning for the next election starts today. Obviously there’s a place for the Green party in the long run…the issues haven’t disappeared and neither will we.

Meanwhile, the Green Party’s Eamon Ryan said it had been a “sad and difficult day”, but that the party remains united and “will rebuild for the future”.
