" 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 same small , dedicated Clondalkin-based group of people that RSF worked with in 'N.O.T.A.' campaigns have produced a 'Vote No' leaflet in connection with the 'Austerity Treaty' vote which will be held in this State on Thursday 31st May 2012.

This co-operation has, once again , proved mutually beneficial to both groups , as the 'Pro NOTA / Anti Austerity Treaty' campaign group have had, so far , at least three times the amount of leaflets distributed than that which they themselves could have managed and RSF has upped its profile in Clondalkin and surrounding areas and made new contacts which will prove useful in the future. Also , RSF has used this opportunity to highlight a new website which they set-up in connection with the 'Austerity Treaty' and , in the same door-to-door , pub , club etc leaflet 'drop' , they have distributed thousands of their own leaflets. 'Win' or 'lose' on May 31st next , both groups have used the occasion to spread an anti-capitalist , pro-democracy message , and are to be congratulated for doing so !
