" 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. 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!

Na Fianna Éireann recently held two celebrations to mark its 100th Anniversary - one in Dublin and the other in Limerick , both taking place on the same day - Sunday 16th August 2009. Those celebrations were announced here, amongst other places , and reports on both of those Anniversary events were carried here and here.
This blog has recently received a number of photographs of the Dublin event , which we publish with this post -

Congratulations to Na Fianna Éireann on reaching their 100th 'birthday' and on celebrating same in such a public fashion. This is one republican organisation which will continue to grow, as those that know its membership and leadership will agree : they have held steadfast to their republican principles through thick and thin and will continue to so!
