The dry Ard Fheis

January 21st, 2012 · 2 Comments · Irish Politics

Update: It seems this may well be a cruel joke that is being played on some members of Fianna Fáil. Some who may have to buy me a pint as I await final verification. Take with strong pinch of salt – it is a great chance to replay the David Davin Power zombie video though

Fianna Fáil’s ard fheis in the RDS on March 2/3 will be a dry house. Word is reaching the grass roots (and me) that the party have decided not to have a bar available and no alcohol will be allowed in the venue for the duration.

The measure is reported to save thousands of Euro in service and insurance costs and is aimed at ‘removing drunken stereotype of such events’.

So the chances of this (and shouts of ‘Up ya boyah’ at Micheal Martin) have been reduced significantly.

Unless of course the party faithful top up at Paddy Cullens before the leaders speech?
