IRSP Ard Fheis
Though reports have been sparse, the IRSP came within a month of its commitment to hold a party Ard Fheis (national congress) every two years by convening its 2006 Ard Fheis during the month of December.
The International Republican Socialist Network is pleased to report that the Ard Fheis enthusiastically passed a resolution against the INLA decommissioning its weapons, although it is unfortunate that this means that the party ignored a resolution at its 1998 Ard Fheis which stated that the topic of decommissioning of INLA weapons was to be barred from further discussion by an IRSP Ard Fheis.
Other than noting that solidarity was expressed with the people of Iraq, no other details were forthcoming. Especially frustrating was a lack of information on the incoming Ard Comhairle, but it is unlikely that the Political Secretary and his supporters within the leadership were displaced.
