" 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!

"They might forget about me if I can hide behind this Jeep.....!"

There are more CABHAIR Swim pics 'out there' , and we are trying to round them up for publication on this blog : hopefully , over the next few days , we will do so , as all concerned deserve whatever publicity they can get for the trojan effort they put in on Christmas Day , at the side of - and in! - the snowy and icy Grand Canal in Inchicore!
