" 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.)

PETER ROGER CASEMENT BRADY / RUAIRÍ Ó BRÁDAIGH - BORN 2ND OCTOBER 1932 , DIED 5TH JUNE 2013. REST IN PEACE , A CHARA.

Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dilis.

Irish Republicanism lost a Founding Father today , Wednesday , 5th June 2013. I knew the man very well for the last two decades and , as with his comrade Dáithí Ó Conaill , I had the highest regard for him. My deepest sympathy to his family and to his political family.

Ruairí's principles shine through in these two articles and the light he leaves behind will continue to shine on the true Irish Republican path ; it's not the smooth journey that others prefer but it's a path which guarantees that the destination will be reached. And we will remember Ruairí and his comrade Dáithí , amongst others, when we get there.

RIP.
