Alex at Conference 2008
We had a busy and productive conference this weekend in Kilkenny. The mood among party members was one of optimism and bouyancy, much encouraged by Eamon Gilomore’s superb speech on Saturday night.
I got to speak myself over the weekend and the videos are below. Firstly, I spoke as Party Spokesperson on Children in relation to the National Recreation Policy and the lack of forward thinking on policies affecting young people. View this video by clicking here.
Secondly, I spoke on the aftermath of the Morris Tribunal report and in particular, the unwarranted criticism of my colleague Deputy Brendan Howlin. View this video by clicking here.
Finally, I was priviliged and honored to be asked to introduce Leader Eamon Gilmore to the stage for his keynote address. View this video by clicking here.
