" 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.

FAT CATS : No money for our pensioners or for our school-kids , but €400 billion found for the Banks!


On Saturday , 6th December 2008 , Republican Sinn Féin held it's monthly protest at the GPO in O'Connell Street , Dublin , in support of POW status for republican prisoners : half of the approximate thirty-strong group of protesting republicans stayed on that protest whilst , as pre-arranged, the other half joined-in with the 70,000-strong crowd that were protesting against State education cuts . The following five photographs were taken by an RSF member on that protest march -

"Our kids can't afford it - and neither can we...!"

Small kids , bigger classes...

"Don't punish our kids for your incompetence..."

School kids , parents and teachers - united in their demand: "No Education Cut-Backs...!"

" Hey ! Cowen ! Leave our kids alone....!"

"The development of the race depends on the development of the individual , and where self-culture has ceased to be the ideal , the intellectual standard is instantly lowered and , often, ultimately lost..."
(Oscar Wilde)
Congratulations and "Well Done!" to all those who took to the streets of Dublin on Saturday December 6th last , whether in protest against the Education cut-backs or to highlight the POW issue : both are honourable Causes!
