The FFGLab party have taken care of their own by nominating Gilmore for the post of head of the EU’s human rights monitoring and advocacy operation.
Eamon Gilmore nominated to lead EU human rights advocacy
Happy Gilmore is of course is most famous for making up a job for his wife after her old position was abolished:
I didnt get my wife â‚¬117,000 job in Education â€“ Eamon Gilmore - Independent.ie
Was there a competition and hiring process for candidates to get a nomination for this position ? More seriously is there any sort of due process involved in nominations to these plum positions in the EU ? Labour of course previously nominated Kevin Cardiff who had a senior role in the department of finance when the economy collapsed.
