" 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.)

...a protest against the recently-implemented State Household Tax was held today (Saturday 25th February 2012) in Clondalkin Village , Dublin : members of the local Máire Drumm/Kevin Barry Cumann of Republican Sinn Féin took part in this protest and maintained their presence outside the Offices of South Dublin County Council for the full ninty minutes that the protest lasted for.

Hundreds of leaflets were distributed in the area , and a very welcome response was received by the protesters from shoppers going in to the near-by Mill Shopping Centre and from the drivers and passengers of the hundreds of cars that slowed down as they passed the protest .

As usual , the Clondalkin-based 'Mr T' was present with his 'Browning' camera (!) , as was 'Baby t' and , between them , they took a sh.....utter load of pics which , when they eventually tire of pressing leaflets in through the open windows of passing cars (!) , they will post on this 'Facebook' page !
Congrats to all those who took part in this protest , and to the many hundreds of passing supporters who voiced their agreement with the objectives on those on the protest - 'DON'T REGISTER FOR THE HOUSEHOLD TAX , AND DON'T PAY IT !'

Thanks for reading,
