" 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!

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.
