" 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. But not to worry -thanks to everyone involved for getting us to the final stage of the competition and sure we'll try again the next time!

A report , pictures and comments on the Easter Monday RSF Commemoration at the GPO in Dublin can be viewed here and here.
As you will read , proceedings went ahead with only two minor hitches - an unexpected Commemoration and the weather! The RSF event was well organised , well attended and was a credit to that organisation , which conducted itself with a dignity befitting its Republican heritage .
Well done to all involved !
