Welcome to Lagan Politics
Sinn Fein has had a ground breaking Ard Fheis (party conference) this weekend. Not only was a Royal Charity - the Princes Trust - on display but a Protestant clergyman addressed the gathering even going so far as to call Martin McGuinness ' a Great Leader'
This was one of the first times the Ard Fheis has met outside Dublin and the event attracted some media interest. Sinn Fein have also announced their intention to perhaps field a candidate for the upcoming Irish Presidency.
