For AiB readers who have an interest in Alliance but don’t follow local political machinations over on Slugger O’Toole, you may want to check out the posts below:
- Preview of the conference.
- Live coverage of Saturday’s conference. Enda Kenny – leader of Fine Gael – delivered a speech, stayed for the morning, and then headed back to Dublin. A few minutes later, Brian Cowen resigned as FF leader, and Enda Kenny turned around and came back to do press interviews from the Dunadry car park. Meanwhile inside the hotel, Alliance were in an upbeat mood having secured seats in Westminster and around the NI Executive table during 2010.
- Interview with recent recruit Harry Hamilton.
- Reflection on the conference, with quick interviews with leader David Ford, deputy leader Naomi Long and North Down councillor Andrew Muir who described himself in his conference speech as "not the only gay in the village".
