There's been a 60-per-cent increase in the Green Party's membership.

That's according to new figures released by the party, ahead of its National Convention in Dublin today.

Members will reflect on their successful local and European elections, in which 37 councillors and two MEPs were elected.

Party leader, Eamon Ryan, says they now need to focus on the next general election.

He says the Green wave across Europe means the party has never been in better shape.

Eamon Ryan believes they can't rest on the new party's new found success though and says it's time to turn that success into work at a local level.

He wants the grassroots to fight for new deals on climate change, transport and planning to turn the party's push  into actual action.
