" 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!

DAN KEATING , IRISH REPUBLICAN : January 2nd 1902 - October 2nd 2007 .

" Anybody can make history . Only a great man can write it."
(Oscar Wilde)

Dan Keating made history , and helped write and record it. A principled Irish Republican from his teenage years to his last breath , Dan never gave up on the Cause and was a beacon of strength to all he came into contact with . Over his many years of involvement in this Struggle , he could have taken the easy way out many times but his commitment to righting a wrong would never allow for that . His passing will leave a huge gap in the hearts of his many friends and comrades.
