FF have their annual fat cat bash a week before their budget from hell. The dinner which costs aprox €1000 per table is a little short on detail this year, but last year it was held in the City West hotel.

Mr Cowen gives a speech to inspire the FF faithful, I bet it will be fun this year.

The FF website is a bit short on detail for this years event, and the page is blank, a bit like the party at this stage.

Cairde Fáil Annual Dinner | Fianna Fáil

Cowens speech from last year makes very interesting viewing.

Expect lots of 'Up the Republics", green flags, 1916, de Valera and "hard fought for independence"

Will FF do their usual stuffing of state boards before they leave office. I imagine a few members might be encouraged to buy a table in return for "serving the state" and appointment to a well paid sinecure. Need to get in now, could be a long time before FF will be able to look after their people in this way.

...but very few Cairde.
Great night to stir the pot. Ministers will be flying from table to table to endear themselves with the bakcbench TDs and their CDC Hierarchy.

Cancel? Are you mad? Fianna Fail is broke, it needs hard cash to fight this election - why do you think the election was not called last night?

And like the Parable.... When no one turns up Mr Cowen says to his servents....'Go out to the Highways and Byways and invite......'


This is where it differs from the Parable..... Still No One turns up!

Sorry, FF broke?

But isnt it an article of faith on this site that FF is corrupt and in the pockets of developers, builders and bankers?

So if they didnt wreck the economy for the money, what did they do it for? Love?

The optics of this event would far outweigh any monetary benefit in having this event. They can borrow cash if they need it. It would be seriously damaging them to have this kind of event going on when the country is where it is.

I agree, ordinary people should storm it and hold a peaceful sit down protest.
The Gardai seem to have decided that there's no such thing as a peaceful protest and are wont to unleash the "riot squad" - now re-names the far more PC "public order" squad.

They (the gardai) have behaved very poorly in recent weeks.

Surely this is an ideal time for the members of P.ie to buy a table, and start a revolt from the inside...or alternatively Suicide bomber........then you could be considered a true hero for Ireland



Are you still laughing Brian.........

When you use "party" funds to fund your lifestyle of yachts and fancy shirts, or to buy the bit on the side a house, what would you expect.
