" 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!

...and we're back . From New York , that is.... !

Well , that's not strictly true : John stayed in Dublin , catching-up with other things , and 'Junior' spent most(some?) of the time studying for his college exams . Myself and three of the girlfriends jetted off to New York for a week-long party....

...shopping.....

...mixing sport.....

...with a few bottles of cider.....

...and then going shopping again !

The 'Transportation Security Administration' branch of the ' U S Department Of Homeland Security' said 'Hello' to me as they 'borrowed' a suitcase padlock from me and 're-arranged' one of my suitcases but , apart from that and the 5-hour time difference between Ireland and New York and the 7-hour airplane journey to get there (and another seven hours to get back!) and really missing the kids , it was a brilliant holiday!

But we're back now , and the usual 'three-in-one' blog post will be published tomorrow (Wednesday May 14th) , probably a little later than usual ,as I'm still a wee bit jet-lagged . No , I tell a lie . I have sooooooo many new clothes to try-on that I just know I'm gonna be late with the post.....
