" 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!

"If CABHAIR can hold an outdoor swim in these weather conditions , then they can do it in ANY weather conditions.....!"

Some of those that braved the elements for CABHAIR on Christmas Day 2010.

One of the CABHAIR swimmers , Karl , (right of pic) and three of his admirers!

There are more Swim pics 'out there' and, if/when we get them , we will post them here. Meanwhile , keep an eye out for the January 2011 issue of 'Saoirse' which will carry a Swim report and more pics. And check back here tomorrow where , as stated, we will publish a few pics of a poster re the EEC , which was issued by the Republican Movement in 1972.....
Thanks for the visit ,
