Hello from the Fine Gael Ard Fheis

Hello there! My name is Stephen Spillane (of Stephenspillane.com) and I am going to be the blogger here at the 2009 Fine Gael Ard Fheis in City West for Slugger.

It seems us bloggers have a room all to ourselves at this Ard Fheis which is a bit of a novelty and I am currently the only one in it. There is a good buzz around City West at the moment with people arriving in good spirits as they book in.The new logo is all over the place. Its on the stage, on the main entrace, on all the sign posts. Why they are changing the logo nine weeks before an election is beyond me.

Currently rehersals are going on for the motions tonight which is a session on “Ireland and the International Stage”. The full Clár is availble here.

The liveblog is also online if you want to keep up with what is said about it on twitter. Also they will be streaming the conference on the Fine Gael Website.

I will try and keep you all updated with the goings on down here and if anything interesting happens.
