“My First Six Weeks in Leinster House” by Simon Coveney from the 1999 Fine Gael Ard Fheis March 9, 2017
From the 1999 Booklet for the Fine Gael Ard Fheis, the photos from the Young fine Gael pages. Amongst others pictured is a young Leo Varadkar. Theres also a group in fancy dress with Nora Owen ‘Launching their passion for Europe Campaign’ for the Amsterdam Treaty .(The leaflets caused some controversy). Would love to know if there were any future TDs lurking in that fancy dress picture.
I’ve also included a picture related to the ‘Touts Out’ campaign mentioned in the text under the Leo Picture.
From the booklet for the 1999 Fine Gael Ard Fheis a four page article by PJ O’Meara ‘Fine Gael Through The Decades… a brief history’. It has plenty of nice pictures and ends on an optimistic note that …’Fine Gael should ready itself for an imminent return to Government’.
