" 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!

Too much of the former, not quite managing the latter!

Hectic. We had an RSF Dublin Comhairle 650-ticket raffle in November last, on the same weekend as the (112th) RSF Ard Fheis, then the Christmas Swim, quickly followed by the Dáithí Ó Conaill Commemoration on New Year's Day then, one week after that, the Seán Sabhat Commemoration (Sunday 8th January 2017) and now we're gearing-up for the Fearghal ÓhAnluain Commemoration (Sunday 15th January next)...like I said - hectic! But we'll be back to normal next week and, among other pieces, we'll be posting about an 'Apollo House'-type action (hi all!) which took place in Dublin over 90 years ago but, for now, that's it. We're going back to 'running', again, for a few more days...!

Thanks for visiting, see ye next week - Sharon.
