" 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!

BEER MATS - FOUR FOR A FIVER !

The Beer Mats in action : catch them in Dublin on Saturday 17th October 2009....


In their more-than 15 years together ,they have performed with groups like The Dubliners,The Fureys, The Wolfe Tones, The Dublin City Ramblers and Tommy Sands , in countries such as Ireland , Britain , Switzerland , Spain and America.

.....in a Ballyfermot pub!

The Beer Mats gig will be taking place tonight (Saturday 17th October 2009) in the 79'r pub in Ballyfermot , Dublin ; doors open at 9pm , admission is €5 per person and the usual raffle will be held , with raffle tickets selling for five for two Euro and/or fifteen for a fiver. The organisers have reported that all distributed entry tickets have been returned , sold, and that they have held back 30 such tickets for sale at the door on the night so , as we say here in Dublin - " First up, best dressed..." / "Longest arm, best fed..." In other words - if you're going to the gig , but haven't got a pre-paid entry ticket , be there between 9pm and 9.30pm and you should still get in!
Thanks!
Sharon.
