Fianna Fail eyeing Northern Ireland…

Here’s a thing. Former SDLP Mayor of Belfast Martin Morgan and an ex vice chair Eddie Espie are talking to the Dún Laoghaire Fianna Fáil tomorrow night as part of a discussion of the party’s future role in Northern Ireland. There was some considerable speculation on the possibility of Fianna Fail moving north, just prior to a better than expected SDLP performance in the last Westminster election. It’s thought that there are up to about 100 private members already in Northern Ireland. Is this just a toe in the waters? Or is the party considering establishing a 32 county presence? And, indeed, are Martin and Eddie to be the first Northern Irish FF converts?
