" 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.)

REPUBLICAN PICKET ON PORTLAOISE PRISON TO BE HELD ON SATURDAY 1st MAY 2010 , FROM 12 NOON to 1PM.




The POW Department of Republican Sinn Féin has organised a picket on Portlaoise Jail for Saturday, May 1 at 12noon.

The picket is to show solidarity with the CIRA POWs who are undertaking a 48-hour fast from Friday, April 30 at 8pm until Sunday, May 2 at 8pm in support of the demands of the Republican POWs in Maghaberry jail for political status.

Currently the POWs in Maghaberry are locked down for 23 hours a day, leaving just one hour to fit in a visit
(legal and personal) , a shower, exercise and a meal. The POWs took over the canteen in the jail on Easter Sunday in protest against the deteriorating conditions which have since worsened.
Show your support for the POWs and come along to the picket.


A private-hire bus for this picket will be leaving from a Dublin City Centre location at 10.30am on Saturday morning : the return fare is ten Euro per person. To book one of the last few remaining seats on this bus, please email me at - sharonosuillibhan@yahoo.com , leaving your name and mobile 'phone number.
Thanks!
Sharon.
