" 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 - we made it to the finalists page last year but never got to the stage :- ( 'cause not enough of ye feckers out there voted for us! So we're gonna give ya a second chance - the blog awards this year will be held on Thursday, October 5th (2017) in The Academy, Middle Abbey Street, in Dublin city centre, and we would appreciate if you could keep an eye here and give us a vote when ya can. Or else we'll get our 'Junior' to put up a pay wall and then ye will be sorry...!

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.......
