" 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!

109TH RSF ARD FHEIS - TWO PICS , FEW WORDS - MORE LATER!

109TH ARD FHEIS OF REPUBLICAN SINN FÉIN.

RSF delegates at 9.30am , Saturday 2nd November 2013.

A selection of the material available at the RSF 'Shop' at the 2013 Ard Fheis.

There was a bigger than expected turnout at the 109th RSF Ard Fheis in Dublin (2nd and 3rd November 2013) at which 114 resolutions were discussed. On occasion it was standing-room only and the crowd actually spilled out into the corridor , which caused a bit of a stir for the RSF security people present and for hotel workers, but extra seating was placed in a close-by side room and about twenty of those from the corridor sought refuge there!

We will post a few more pics and words on Wednesday evening , 6th November 2013, including a mention of an unfortunate incident in which a semi-political group attempted to disrupt proceedings.... (MORE LATER).

Thanks for reading , Sharon.
