" 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..."

The local 'Joe McDonnell Cumann' of Republican Sinn Féin held a very successfull commemoration/wreath laying ceremony today (Sunday 26 July 2009) for Eamonn Ceannt , in a park named after the man , in Crumlin , Dublin. About thirty local members and supporters gathered at a near-by point and , at about 12.45 pm , marched to the memorial stone in that park . The proceedings were Chaired by Paddy Ennis , who welcomed the crowd and gave a brief outline of why it is that RSF honour men and women like Eamonn Ceannt. He then called on Des Dalton to deliver the main oration , included in which was a history of Ceannt and good details on the part the man played in the 1916 Rising.

A full report , and different pics , will be published in the August 2009 issue of the 'Saoirse' republican newspaper , which goes to print this coming Wednesday , 29 July 2009.
