This weekend I will be at the Green Party National Convention in Galway, contributing to the party’s Convention web log. I’m hoping to provide some commentary from behind the scenes, as well as covering the various speeches, debates and motions as they happen.
Eamon Ryan has decided not to continue with his attempt to get a presidential nomination, so we will not have an election after all. There is also a news story on RTÉ. I can understand the reasons put forward, but I was really looking forward to a campaign.
There is still a slim chance of an election going ahead, if Dana or Vincent Salafia can get themselves nominated, but in all likelihood Mary McAleese will be nodded through for another seven years.
