The tenacious Richard Delevan is live-blogging the Sinn FÃ©in Ard Fheis. Bravo! He opens with a brief report on Martin McGuinness’ speech and notes that “the media were kept outside the auditorium for an extra hour. Speculation is that some remarks were made during the opening ceremony that we weren’t meant to hear”.. hmmm. His second blog notes that by the time Gerry Kelly had finished his speech, “Half the media had already gone home.”
A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
