" 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.)

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!

....our previous post in relation to this protest march gave incorrect assembly and destination points : the correct assembly point is at the Civic Offices on Wood Quay , from where , at 12 Noon , those present will form-up and march to the GPO in O'Connell Street , where a rally will be held.

However - no change or corrections needed for these three events :

The RSF Ard Fheis 2010 is unchanged in venue and time etc - this weekend in a Dublin Hotel , as stated, and.....

....the 650-ticket raffle will be held on Sunday 14th November , in a different Dublin hotel and , finally.....

....the Annual CABHAIR Christmas Day Swim : so far , five brave men , who have been gathering sponsorship for the past few weeks and who have each collected a few hundred Euro, have been trying to loose their beer-bellies (!) and co-ordinate the colour of their 'Speedos' ;-) !
The 2009 colour scheme can be viewed here...
