" 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..."

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.

We know why that particular administration would be interested in us ie they would view that which we represent [Irish Republicanism] as a threat . However - could we ask you , the reader, to do something likewise and tell Mick why it is that you like us !
Thanks!
