As the thread title suggests, neither will attract much media coverage, but the annual conferences of two Irish political parties occur this weekend. Firstly, the Greens are meeting in Waterford's Tower Hotel - in the last twelve months they have become the first party ever to regain seats in the Dáil, won a Seanad seat, and retained both Stormont MLAs. Meanwhile, the Alliance are also meeting in Belfast, having comfortably retained all eight MLAs in a reduced Assembly, while also eyeing gains in South Down and North Belfast in the imminently expected new election.
