    I think that they have realised that it would become a focal point for the anger of the Irish people.

    Oh they'd have managed to fill it! Didn't they have regional ones?

    I'd say thsi is the real reason too. Imagine the crowd that would gather outside. Wouldn't look good on the TV having the guards trying to control the rioting crowds, throwing stones at the FF mercs as they passed by etc.

    They are running away from the by-elections and running away from holding an Ard Fhéis. FF are on the run all over.

    Next FF Ard Fheis will be about a year after Biffo is gone when GE is over, a chance to introduce new leader to the plain people of Ireland, and the clár will have several motions condemning cutbacks.
    You'd think Kenny committed Treason and brought in IMF. Cowen had all in stitches in Galway at 3.30a.m.but he was "not impaired" -DD Power. FF=Publican páirtí an IMF.

    RegionaL meetings are the order of the day. I was at the Dublin one in June I think and it was full house, in fact it jammed tight with evert square inch filled with people. Cowen in particular made a specially good speech and one thing that struck me was that Kenny and Gilmore are not a patch on him. And before anyone cries preaching to the converted remember FF people are mainly a hardnosed bunch of politicos and trying to pull the wool over our eyes is a pointless exercise
