" 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.)

IRISH BLOG AWARDS 2017 - ooops! It seems that our entry application was "not completed in time to be considered.." (?) and, as such, we are not now in the running. But we wish all the best to the successful entrants and to the organisers, and we hope all goes well for them on the day!

This blog has received information , from a source which has never failed us in the past , that a story is about to break concerning people on this isle who have spent the previous 30 years underwater !
Apparently , a connection to said feat can be made to the continuing British military and political presence on this island: details on this story are firming up as I type but , not being a 'tabloid'-type blog , we are holding off on publication until all necessary facts have been confirmed to our satisfaction .
As it stands now we are almost certain that , in the coming days/weeks , we will be publishing full details on this remarkable achievement : we ask our readers to bear with us , remain calm and be patient whilst we wait on the full details to be made available to us and to allow us the time we need to verify 100% the accuracy of all information we receive regarding this unbelievable occurrence .
In the meantime , blogging on '1169...' will resume as normal.......
