" 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!

The following statement was issued to the media today , Saturday 3rd December 2011 , by Dublin RSF , and we were requested to post same on this blog :

In light of media speculation it needs to be clarified that Liam Kenny,
Clondalkin , resigned in writing from Republican Sinn Féin on September 23 , 2010 and , on October 18 , 2010 , he accepted a letter from the Clondalkin-based Maire Drumm / Kevin Barry Cumann of Republican Sinn Féin confirming that his letter of resignation had been accepted.
From September 23 , 2010 , Liam Kenny had no input , locally or nationally , to or with the Republican Movement.

John Horan (PRO)
Comhairle Ceantair Atha Cliath,
Teach Dáithí Ó Conaill,
Republican Sinn Féin,
223 Parnell Street ,
Dublin 1.

As a resident in Clondalkin , and an Irish Republican activist , I can confirm the above as I knew Liam from his brief stay in the Movement and spoke with him on various occasions both before and after he left.
Thanks for reading ,
