" A wealth of information..."

"1169 And Counting is a wealth of information on our Republican past and present , and demonstrates how the Irish political landscape , like that of any nation, will never be a black and white issue..."

(From the ‘e-Thursday’ section of the ‘Business Week’ supplement of the ‘Irish Independent’ , 21st August 2008.)

From 'VILLAGE' magazine , 7-13th September 2006 -

' Garda Donal Corcoran (left , with baton) who became known as 'Robocop' after he struck protesters with his baton at the 'Reclaim The Streets (RTS)' rally in May 2002 was recently promoted to detective rank . He was acquitted of assault charges arising from the protest , but admitted using excessive force . He is currently being investigated by the Garda Complaints Board for allegedly not wearing an ID number at the RTS rally .'

So there you have it : if you want to 'get ahead' in the Gardai , don't use your head . Use someone else's .
