" 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.)

This blog was listed as one of the 'Finalists' in the '2016 current affairs/politics' category of the Littlewoods Ireland blog awards - but we didn't win the award. Ah well! Thanks to everyone involved for getting us to the final stage of the competition and sure we'll try again next year!

What planet are Lidl on....... ?

The Schwarz Lebensmittel-Sortimentsgrosshandlung family have a lot to answer for !

Log on to the Lidl website
and witness this legend for yourself -

'Select your Country
Rep. of Ireland
Northern Ireland'

"Country" ? An e-mail to their Head Office seeking clarification has already been dispatched - the reply , if any , will be posted here . Meanwhile , it would be better to refrain from purchasing road-maps or geography books etc from any of their stores as same would most likely only lead you further astray.......
