" 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..."

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!

CABHAIR SWIM IN ARMAGH , SUNDAY 22ND DECEMBER 2013.

ARMAGH ARMADA!

From all accounts, the CABHAIR Swim in Craigavon Lakes , Armagh, on Sunday 22nd December 2013, went according to plan and no harm came to fish, foul , reeds or the swimmers!

We have come across a few pics from the event, which we post here, and will remind our readers that the Dublin Swim , also for Cabhair, will be held tomorrow (Christmas Day) and we will post a wee write-up with a few pics from same as soon as we thaw out and/or sober up....!









If you can make it to the Cabhair Swim in Dublin , we'll see you there but if you can't make it , you'll still be able to donate whatever you can afford - details here. Thanks for reading! Sharon.
