" 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!

LOCKED-UP FOR 11 YEARS....

...FOR TRYING TO ARRANGE A BABY-SITTER.

This man was locked up by the British for 11 years after a politically-motivated 'trial' for being in the wrong place at the wrong time - he was simply trying to arrange for a babysitter for the evening....this British political 'leopard' changed its spots twice in Ireland but maintained its old objectives....'Punch drunk' ? - he wears a Poppy because he believes it represents what he wants it to represent....this Irish political prisoner was kept in continuous solitary confinement for two-and-a-half years....'sleeping with the fishes' for opening his mouth...check back here tomorrow, Wednesday 4th November 2015.

Thanks for reading, Sharon.
