" 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!

'DAZE' LIKE THESE...

OUR REQUEST TO THOSE WHO HAVE A VOTE ON THURSDAY 23RD JUNE 2016 -

- GIVE US BACK OUR VISIBLE 'BORDER'!

Life here just hasn't been the same since those Goddam european bureaucrats and their pc buddies temporarily removed the British Army squaddies and their checkpoints from their imposed 'border' in Ireland and - call us 'old fashioned' if you want - we miss those days and want them back. And you can help, if you have a vote on the day...

The crowd have come to say farewell,

the church bell rings a low peeled knell,

regimental standards are lowered down

as the hero passed through the town...


...check back with us on Wednesday 8th June 2016. And have your Passport at the ready..

Thanks for the visit, Sharon.
