" 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..."

DEAD REPUBLICAN CLAIMED AS A MEMBER BY ANTI-REPUBLICAN POLITICAL PARTY!

1169 EXCLUSIVE!! A TEN-YEARS-DEAD IRISH REBEL CLAIMED AS A MEMBER BY A THEN NON-EXISTENT 'REPUBLICAN' PARTY!

Unbelievable, but true! Of all the political faux pas left in their wake by false-flag 'republican' groups, this has to be one of the most notable. A ladder-climber who attached himself to a 'republican party' recently claimed that one of the leaders of the 1916 Rising joined his party after the Rising and used that 'fact' as a reason to verbally attack a different false-flag 'republican' group, one which, among other hypocrisies, actually assists in implementing the British writ in Ireland!

An inexcusable blunder, at any time, by that semi-political ladder-climber, but more so in this, the centenary year of the 1916 Rising, when the history of that period and of the 1916 leader in question have been brought to the fore and it has been continually highlighted that the 1916 leader in question was actually executed by the British after the Rising - a decade before the 'republican party' he was said to have joined was even founded!

Full story - and photographic proof - to be posted here on Wednesday, 22nd June 2016. See ya then!

Thanks for the visit, Sharon.
