" 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.)



IRISH BLOG AWARDS 2017 - ooops! It seems that our entry application was "not completed in time to be considered.." (?) and, as such, we are not now in the running. But we wish all the best to the successful entrants and to the organisers, and we hope all goes well for them on the day!

CABHAIR ANNUAL TESTIMONIAL DINNER AND REPUBLICAN REUNION 2010.



Going back to at least the early 1970’s , the Republican Movement, and supportive and affiliated organisations , have come together each year to choose a handful of individuals who are deemed suitable emissaries to represent all that Irish Republicanism stands for and that which it seeks to obtain. Having decided on the best honorees possible , a Dinner , Dance and Reunion is held to properly convey the Movement’s appreciation to those people. And that pleasurable task has been undertaken this year , too -
On Saturday May 22nd 2010 , four Irish Republicans will be honoured at a CABHAIR function to be held for them in Dublin , in the Academy Plaza Hotel, at which a Presentation will be made to each of them. Those four notable Stalwarts of Irish Republicanism are : Paul Stanley (Leinster) , Leo Martin (Ulster), Bart Gormley (Connacht) and Pádraig Mac Mathúna (USA).
This blog extends warmest ‘Congrats!’ to those Honorees , and we hope to have a representative present on the night to record proceedings. Well Done to ye all -
Ni Seoinini Sinn Go Leir !
