PDs got O'Gorman on general election ticket ahead of Labour

Irish Independent

THE PDS beat Labour to the punch for Colm O'Gorman as a general election candidate.

Mr O'Gorman admitted at the PD press conference yesterday he had been approached by other parties, and Labour last night confirmed it had been in talks with the high-profile leader of One in Four, the organisation for victims of sexual abuse.

Mr O'Gorman was present at some recent Labour events and spoke publicly at more than one of these.

In 2003, Mr O'Gorman was presented with the James Larkin justice award at the Labour party's annual conference in Tralee - Pat Rabbitte's first as leader.
