" 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!

RSF EASTER COMMEMORATIONS, DUBLIN, 2015.

KEEPIN' HER LIT!



This is an 'inbetweenie' post to keep y'all occupied (!) until we get back to normal next Wednesday (18th March) with our usual offering but, 'inbetweenie' or not, it's an important announcement , concerning next month's Easter commemorations in Dublin.

On Easter Sunday (5th April 2015), a commemoration will be held in Deansgrange Cemetery and those attending are requested to assemble at the cemetery gates at 12.45pm. On Easter Monday, republicans will be assembling at the Garden of Remembrance in Parnell Square and will parade from there, at 1.45pm, to the GPO where the main Dublin commemoration will be held. And, as we're on the subject of Easter, a cautionary note - beware of whom you obtain an Easter Lily from, as there are charlatans....

...attempting to distribute same with permission of the Free State -

- that is, they actually see nothing wrong in applying for a permit/licence to distribute Easter Lily's from the same political institution that the men and women of 1916 fought against! Honestly - they take being ludicrous to new heights....

See you all next Wednesday!

Thanks for reading, Sharon.
