" 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!

PROTEST MARCH TO BE HELD IN CLONDALKIN BY CDP/JI/CE WORKERS ON MONDAY 23rd NOVEMBER 2009.
CDP/JI/CE 'savings' needed to pay for the financial bonus to the political 'elite'.

RSF members and supporters were involved in the last protest (Monday, October 19th last) in Clondalkin , Dublin, and will be present again at a second such protest this Monday, 23rd November.

A protest march through Clondalkin Village , to the office of local Fianna Fail elected representative John Curran , will be held on Monday 23rd November 2009, beginning at 3.30pm.
The protest has been organised by Community Development Project groups and will be supported by , amongst others, CDP's, JI and CE workers from Clondalkin and other parts of Dublin. The groups are meeting up at 3.30pm outside the County Council Offices in Clondalkin Village
(facing the Mill Shopping Centre) and will march through the Village to the office of Fianna Fail State Minister John Curran.
It will be loud and colourful -
and serious ; serious, because hundreds of local people , and thousands State-wide, will be affected by the intended closure of the CDP/JI/CE etc programmes , not to mention the 'ripple effect' that losing those community workers will have for local organisations.
THOSE TAKING PART WILL BE MEETING UP AT 3.30pm ON MONDAY 23rd NOVEMBER 2009 OUTSIDE THE COUNTY COUNCIL OFFICES IN CLONDALKIN VILLAGE.
Thanks!
Sharon.
