" 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 - we made it to the finalists page last year but never got to the stage :- ( 'cause not enough of ye feckers out there voted for us! So we're gonna give ya a second chance - the blog awards this year will be held on Thursday, October 5th (2017) in The Academy, Middle Abbey Street, in Dublin city centre, and we would appreciate if you could keep an eye here and give us a vote when ya can. Or else we'll get our 'Junior' to put up a pay wall and then ye will be sorry...!

...and Dublin, Sunday 25th October 2015 - from the Half'penny Bridge to Australia, and beyond...these Irish republican ladies established a group to assist an existing male-dominated group but were not made feel welcome for having done so...a link (of sorts) between Frank Driver, Kevin Barry, James Daly, IRA Volunteers Paul Smith, George Keegan and Paddy Parle (not forgetting Michael Watters)....and cringe as you read how an Irish 'republican' congratulated the Commander-in- Chief of the British Parachute Regiment on a job well done!
