104th Ard Fheis of Republican Sinn Féin , 8-9th November 2008.

Some pics from the opening session of the 104th Ard Fheis of Republican Sinn Féin , which is being held in a Dublin city-centre venue over this weekend , Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th November 2008. I'll have to let the pics speak for themselves as I'm trying to help organise one of these as well as doing a wee bit at the Ard Fheis . Much too busy to tell you of the large crowd present , the extra helpers needed at the Book-In table and the extra people roped-in to work the Ard Fheis shop . You'll just have to make do with these few pics for now!

The above two pics were taken within a half hour of the opening of the Ard Fheis.

And finally... of the Special Branch cars used by the State to spy on the proceedings of this Ard Fheis . That red car was parked in a side lane beneath a fire escape landing used by those stepping-out of the Ard Fheis hall for a cigarette : it is believed an on-board camera was monitoring those on the landing as they had their smoke . Also , note the absence of insurance , tax and/or NCT discs ; State cut-backs , perhaps...
That's all for now - back to the monthly raffle work for me !
