" 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!

PORTLAOISE PRISON'S FEATHERED FRIEND...

...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!

CHECK BACK ON WEDNESDAY 21ST OCTOBER 2015.

Thanks for visiting, Sharon.
