" 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 - we made it to the finalists page last year but never got to the stage :- ( 'cause not enough of ye feckers out there voted for us! So we're gonna give ya a second chance - the blog awards this year will be held on Thursday, October 5th (2017) in The Academy, Middle Abbey Street, in Dublin city centre, and we would appreciate if you could keep an eye here and give us a vote when ya can. Or else we'll get our 'Junior' to put up a pay wall and then ye will be sorry...!

This being the second Saturday of the month , and tomorrow being the second Sunday of the month (!) , the usual 650-ticket CABHAIR raffle will be held , in the usual venue (an hotel on the Dublin-Kildare border) and, again as usual , all tickets have been sold for same.
However - had we been quicker on the 'draw'
(!) we could have enquired about holding same in the above-pictured venue , 'The Players Lounge' , in Fairview , Dublin : I think we would have felt equally at home there..... ;-) !
Thanks for reading ,
