" 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!

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 ,
