" 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 - ooops! It seems that our entry application was "not completed in time to be considered.." (?) and, as such, we are not now in the running. But we wish all the best to the successful entrants and to the organisers, and we hope all goes well for them on the day!

RSF ARD FHEIS 2012 AND THE STATE POLITICIAN FROM 1689....

RSF 108TH ARD FHEIS 2012 : FEW PICS , MORE TO FOLLOW.....

The lectern graphic which was used at the RSF Ard Fheis on November 10th and 11th 2012.

Apologises for the quality of these pics - we prefer to post good/decent quality pics but on this occasion we are governed by what is available to us : our usual camera-person wasn't on the job (she was one of the crew who was rounding-up some of the 650 tickets for the Monthly Raffle) so we were reliant on a hastily-assembled 'Plan B' , via which we received seven pics (four of which we post here now, with the remainder to be posted tomorrow night).

And, speaking about tomorrow night's post, we will be naming the member of Leinster House who was pulled-in for drink driving in Dublin and who had all charges against him withdrawn after invoking the Free State equivalent of a 'Privilege Bill' which was first issued in the year 1689..... (MORE LATER !)

Some of the graphics on display at the Ard Fheis.

This pic taken at 9.30am on Saturday 10th November as the delegates were taking their seats.

The 2013 RSF Calendar , on sale at the Ard Fheis - and elsewhere, usual outlets included - for €/₤5.

We will publish a few more Ard Fheis pics tomorrow (Wednesday 14th November 2012) and the results of the Monthly Raffle , plus details on that Leinster House politician , the one who , more than eight hours after he left 'work', was still making his way home when he came to the attention of a Garda patrol....

Thanks for reading, Sharon.
