Teilifís Éireann are broadcasting live from the Fine Gael National Conference in Wexford today. The party itself will also be streaming leader Enda Kenny's speech tonight from 8.30pm. The event isn't an Ard Fheis as there's no voting, so it will essentially act as a showpiece for Fine Gael to set out its stall ahead of any possible snap election.
I remember chatting to Enda Kenny before the last southern election in 2007, and at the time he was quietly confident that they could return enough TDs to form a government. In the event, his party fell short, although they improved massively on their 2002 seat tally. A lot of water has passed under the bridge since then, including the financial crisis and budget cuts, and I think it would be fair to say that Kenny et al will be hoping that another election isn't too far off.
