" 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.)

IRISH BLOG AWARDS 2017 - we made it to the finalists page last year but never got to the stage :- ( 'cause not enough of ye feckers out there voted for us! So we're gonna give ya a second chance - the blog awards this year will be held on Thursday, October 5th (2017) in The Academy, Middle Abbey Street, in Dublin city centre, and we would appreciate if you could keep an eye here and give us a vote when ya can. Or else we'll get our 'Junior' to put up a pay wall and then ye will be sorry...!

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.
