The youth wings of Labour and SDLP meet in Belfast today to discuss a new Ireland free of sectarian division.

Both parties have been forging strong links in recent months to promote a social democratic political agenda.

Labour Youth recently held a recruitment campaign in Northern Ireland and attracted members from different backgrounds and communities.

Labour Youth chairman Donal O’Liathain said: “It is important, we feel, that people can express themselves in politics in a peaceful fashion and look forward to a new Ireland where people are united, free from sectarian division.

“Young people North and South have been scarred by the Troubles but we have the power to make the future a happier one for all,” he said.

Guest speakers at the event at Stormont include SDLP MLA Patsy McGlone, Belfast deputy mayor Pat Convery and Ulster Unionist Party member and former Irish rugby international Trevor Ringland.
