Retail Excellence Ireland (REI) has welcomed the recent appointment of Ciaran Lynch as the Labour Party’s Retail Industry spokesperson
CEO of Retail Excellence Ireland, David Fitzsimons commented on the news, "The appointment of Ciaran Lynch as the Labour Party retail spokesperson is a very welcome development."
He added that REI is of the opinion that retail does not enjoy the level of political support it deserves, considering it is the largest industry in Ireland, employing over 280,000 people.
"We hope that other political parties will take note and make similar appointments," he said.
"Knowing Ciaran personally for many years I am very confident that Ciaran fully understands the issues afflicting our industry and is a great appointment by the Labour Party. We look forward to working with Ciaran in his new role."
