" 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.)

PARK SEAT PLAYS ITS PART IN POLITICAL DIRTY TRICKS CAMPAIGN.

14 YEARS FOR NOT FOLLOWING THE PRESCRIBED 'STRAIGHT LINE'.

This young boy didn't follow the 'straight line' that the political establishment wanted...

Heard about the Blueshirt debt collector, a Dundalk tout and two IRA men...? // this woman had everything going for her but her hatred of injustice prevented her from benefiting from her good fortune...// this powerhouse of a man rambled about the place in a trance, couldn't dress himself properly, looked very uncomfortable with and within himself and shouted at himself constantly - but his political thesis amazed those who weren't good enough to mock him...// this IRA man thought the British were out for justice but soon discovered it was revenge they wanted...// Bobby Sands - no straight line to Stormont...

Check in with us again on Wednesday 9th March 2016.

Thanks, Sharon.
