In pictures: Day two of the Fine Gael national conference

Not much happening in Limerick but delegates are having a great laugh by the looks of it.

IT’S THE SECOND and final day of the Fine Gael national conference at the South Court Hotel in Limerick today.

Delegates have been discussing economic recovery, political reform, The Gathering and lots of other exciting things ahead of tonight’s keynote speech from the Taoiseach.

Enda Kenny will address attendees and the nation on live television at 8.30pm, but earlier he was milling around the hotel meeting and greeting, and having a laugh.

It’s all very uncontroversial and good natured.

Here are a few snaps from the day so far via Laura Hutton from Photocall Ireland:
