FORMER FINE GAEL minister Lucinda Creighton will formally launch her new political party this morning.

In a brief statement yesterday afternoon, Creighton said that she will formally launch the new party, as well as unveiling a group of declared candidates for the next general election, at 10am in central Dublin.

The Dublin South-East TD launched the Reboot Ireland project alongside financial advisor Eddie Hobbs at the beginning of January.

She and Hobbs have since undertaken a tour of the country, holding a series of meetings and recruiting party members.

Hobbs has previously said that some 3,500 people have registered with the party, which has no formal name as yet.
