" 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!

First , the "NO" leaflet : this 'NO TO LISBON TWO' leaflet (below) was put together by an RSF Cumann in Dublin Mid-West and hundreds of them have been distributed on a door-to-door basis and in pubs/clubs etc over the past two weeks by members of that Cumann. Other RSF organisations in Dublin and throughout the State will be distributing similar leaflets between now and October next -

The "YES" leaflets : these are new full-colour recruitment leaflets which , again , have recently been distributed by RSF members and supporters in the Dublin area : distribution will be nationwide over the coming weeks -

Both leaflets are being very well received by the public , and a positive feedback has been reported from the areas in Dublin where the leaflets have been distributed - 'YES' to RSF membership , 'NO' to Lisbon Two !
