" 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!

In an action that Dan himself would have appreciated , armed Irish Republican Volunteers paid a fitting tribute to life-long Irish Republican Dan Keating, who died at the grand age of 105 on October 2nd ,2007. As stated before , the authors of this blog met Dan on many an occasion and always found the man inspirational. His loss to Irish Republicanism is still being felt , but the legacy he left with us is closely nurtured and will be passed-on to future generations .
Ni seoinini sinn go leir!
